This is my second blog written to capture memories made with our grandchildren. The link to my first blog, "Meet Our Grandchildren," is listed below in the right hand column. Hope you have time to read some of it. Our journey to becoming grandparents has been full of adventure and much love.

Amanda Lynn's Third Heavenly Birthday
Today was the day I made the finishing touches to Amanda's Third Heavenly Birthday memorial card. Thank God, being Tuesday, Papa and I had Alex who always brings happiness and laughter into our day. He really is a goofy little four year old. I turned and looked at his sweet face as he was swinging from the arm of the treadmill behind me. I could physically feel my love for our five grandchildren. I realized what an honor it is to help reinforce the existence of Amanda, Kristen and Corey's third daughter; Kara and Emily's sister and my granddaughter. We need to know Amanda is remembered.
know that I live on, vibrating to a different measure -- behind a thin veil you cannot see through. You will not see me, so you must have faith. I wait for the time when we can soar together again, -- both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life
to its fullest. And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart . . . I will be there.
The above rainbow appeared over Amanda's garden shortly after her family planted it. Truly a sign our Special Angel Baby is watching over us.
I have been blessed with a wonderful husband, Ken, two amazing daughters, Kristen and Michelle, their husbands, Corey and Don, and five grandchildren who have touched my heart in more ways than I can ever verbalize. My fondest memories are of my Dad spending precious time with my daughters telling stories of times gone by, building forts in his living room, eating corn toasties dripping with butter. The list goes on and on. My daughters recount these memories of Grampa Harpy to their children. This blog is my endeavor to recount special times shared and many memories made with my very special grandchildren. It is my hope they will share them with others as the years go by.
