rose garden.

Eighteen years ago we went to visit our very first grandchild. His name is Mikiah. Tomorrow he will be 18! Wow. It's just hard to believe. Time flies when you are old(er). It was such a joy to welcome this little guy into our lives and world. I remember that we brought him a ton of toys and clothes. Fred and I could not stop ourselves from buying every thing we saw that called out: new baby, new baby; and someone had written a song welcoming him into the world called: Little Seal. I can hear the melody in my head as I write this. What a sweet, sweet memory. Happy Birthday, Mikiah. We love you.
