for my Jamie
I look at many pictures
and once again realize
that time has gone by so fast
and continues it seems
at a faster pace.
seems those braces stayed on forever
born 3 weeks early at 3:00 in the afternoon
Girls changed your clothes many times a day and put ribbons in your hair
(over 40 years ago and I remember well )
Your brother and sisters treated you like you were a doll, they wheeled you around in their doll buggy.
Jimmy putting a helmet on your head and taking you for rides in his go cart.
Seems with the first 3 I was so careful - not with you as a house full of children - but
my sweet girl you survived :)
So many memories the time arrived where
times of just you and me at the old farmhouse with all of the animals we raised
then you onto college, graduation and first job at Vanderbilt as an editor.....
I am so very proud of all of your accomplishments in this busy world
and especially of your two beautiful girls and your Alan, .look forward to seeing you and family soon and making your chocolate sheet cake and for the girls a lemon ice box pie - a busy Saturday doing what I
have always loved to do - but at a slower pace :)
