Through Grandma’s Eyes: Ivy Ann

“Time is the coin of life.  It is the only coin you have and only you can determine how you spend it.

Be careful, lest you let other people spend it for you.”

-Carl Sandburg-

journal entry:

Ivy.  What a pretty name.  What a pretty girl.  First she was a little thing with a bald head.  Then her hair reached to her waist.  Then it got snipped off and has been short and long more times than I can count.  Smiling and happy and helpful.  Positive, creative and kind.  Photographs help me to remember little people turned into people taller than I am.  People who have to bend down to give me a hug.  The years ahead will be full of change for Ivy.  That means change for all of us.  Ivy.  What a pretty name.  What a pretty girl !
