"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11


5 years

Five years ago today I was pregnant with a sweet baby girl.
Five years ago today I was finishing up my student teaching.
Five years ago today I lost a great woman- My Grandmother.

She lived a great example of what a strong, giving woman is. Some of the best memories I have are those with her. I miss her everyday. We named that sweet baby girl Nola. I am grateful and honored to be able to have named my daughter after my Grandmother. My Nola has already shown the strength and determination my Grandmother had. Jonathan and I chose the right name.

Now five years later I am pregnant with a sweet baby boy.
Five years later I am teaching.
Five years later I still grieve for the woman I lost.

I love you Grandmother.

What a wonderful legacy she started and it will continue through your daughter! Grandmothers are so special and i know they are with us in spirit even though they may have passed on.

Nola was indeed a special woman - anyone who could accept me into the family had to be. She loved you girls - and she loves our Nola - I promise you that she is watching and loving you all right now! I love you, Daddy
