I know everyone in this world does not share my infatuation with my granddaughter with me,,,,, although I cannot understand why . :) Here is yet another photo of Emmi.
Relax, this post is not all about her, it is about strength, and stubbornness and determination......... and a picture is worth a thousand words... Emili is born to all these character traits..........just being a female in our family------------
Let me explain. Yesterday was my mother's birthday. She is 80 years old and one tough woman. Her life has not always been easy, she has jumped many hurdles........... and yesterday she celebrated those 80 years with such grace and joy.......
Thinking about it, I wondered to myself how she has done it...........but there it is on Emili's face,,,,,,, the photo shows how my Mom, my grandma, and all the other women have done it ,,,,,,,,,,, sheer determination!
"Where there's a will , there's a way...." I don't think I have ever heard my mother utter that cliche......... but she sure has modeled it for us... It has passed through the generations, maybe it's in the DNA,,,,,,,, the proof is in the grandchldren and great-grandchild.
