Today I finished Volume 1 for my grandgirl.
I wasn't prepared to sit and cry while writing her story- but yet..I did.
So much gratitude welled up in me and spilled over.
I think it was the wonder of it all?
I take this baby bloomer to the garden often and rattle on about every flower, plant and weed
that we see. She understands in smiles and jibberjabber.
As I wrote this page to her, I remembered my own Grandmother.
She gave me a love for flowers and gardening too.
I wonder... if being a growgirl can be passed generation
to generation. Time will tell.
It's weighed on me to get her first full year recorded.
And today... it was finished!
Volume two begins.
It will be even more fun now just keeping it up to date.
More wonder to look for.
Which leads me to a picture quote to share:
The photo is of this yellow garden spider that built her beautiful web right in front of the greenhouse
this week. I have to remember to look out for it and not run into it when I come and go.
Spiderwebs are so intricately made and well... they amaze me.
Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.
