This is one of my favorite pictures of my granddaughter. Of course she's grown bunches since this picture was taken last Spring.
I am so missing her today. Although I miss her all the time, some days are by far worse, especially when I look at pictures of her. She lives so far away but usually I've been able to spend some time with her at least twice a year. I usually get to go visit in the Spring, but not this year. She and her mom visited this summer and so it has almost been a year since I've seen her. That is not right. Not natural. I'm in a funk!
With her so in my thoughts today, I think I'll send her an Internet card. I'm off to find the perfect one so she'll know how much I love her and maybe it will give her a smile and let her know how much I love and miss her. It won't be the same as hearing her laugh, or feeling her arms around my neck or seeing that mischievous sparkle in her eyes but it is a connection sort of, and all I can do at the moment.
