who i see (sooc)...

grandparents day 2009. my daughter pays her 95 year old great-grandmother a visit. she brings grandma her very own groovy girl doll. grandma doesn't want to accept it...she doesn't want to take away the child's doll. but my daughter insists. so grandma accepts. as usual, grandma exclaims, "it's not a doll, it's a pretty little girl" and gives her pretty little groovy girl a most welcoming hug.

grandma takes a moment to stop and smell the flowers my daughter hand picked for her from the garden.

time will not erase the child inside. grandma tries on her bottle cap ring. here comes the bride.

grandma is happy. she is not forgotten. she tells hubby that our daughter is the only grandchild who gives her gran-gran anything. celebrating great-grandmothers.

the end.
