Two years before Jill and Wade were married Wade captured this photo in our field which was filled with tall dandelions and wild daisies. I see her in this and keep searching for that glimpse of little baby of mine and wonder where she went and how fast those years slipped away. I remember a pudgy faced little baby with huge round blue eyes that turned into a little tomboy in her grade school years.
I know my mother and mother in law always said that before you know it time will steal away those innocent babies that are so dependent on you to help shape their lives. In the busy moment of living it was so hard to remember to slow down and enjoy. Perhaps that is why God gives us grandchildren. A time to reflect and finally enjoy.
