My Granddaughter is 15

May 18, 1998 my first granddaughter, Victoria Michelle Archer was born. Tori, has been one of JuJu's very best blessings. Time has passed so fast that I am amazed that she is 15. I have watched this young lady with tons of personality , brains, and beauty grow up. I am so happy to have lived and am now living close to her. I remember when Tori was a toddler how much she loved me. I felt so loved by her and still do. We have a special relationship that is hard to explain. Being her grandmother is just wonderful. We share each other's secrets and I giggle with her like I am another teenager. I was not close to my grandmother, never really understood the problem between us. So, I do my best to let Tori know I love her so much and am proud of everything she does. She is an artist, just found this out about 8 months ago. I think this is why she always wanted to make a mess with colors or markers! She sings like an angel ,she is winning scholarships for her talent dancing. I know she is blessed with so much . My prayers for her are many but most of all I want her to know how much she is loved.

 30  years ago tomorrow it snowed between the drive from Clarksville to Eureka Springs, it was raining that afternoon when we were married. The next day was beautiful and there were many more beautiful days priceless memories that will always be blessings stored away inside my heart. I gave my heart away to someone I will probably never understand. I thought I did, I truly believed that it was what the Lord wanted me to do. When the sad time came he was there to help, we raised two beautiful smart daughters, we shared many blessings. Sure there were hard times, days I wanted to throw in the towel but he could make me laugh like nobody else and I decided to stay. Decades passed the girls grew up, he left for a different life, but much remains of us. Because we fell in love there are two beautiful grandsons with both our genes. I would do it all over again for them and for our daughters and for how much I know he loved me, It was worth it and it was a blessing and not a mistake, I had the best years and they will be well rememebered as blessings.
