Today is Violet's birthday!

Happy birthday to my darling granddaughter Violet. Grampy loves you even with a dirty face. I love this photo.
Violet w dirty face.jpgOf course the joy of having Violet is complicated because of the loss of Spike. Some people say I am "lucky". I have given this a lot of thought and I agree. I am lucky. How can I look at Violet and not consider myself lucky? But not far behind the joy of Violet is the grief of Spike.

Spike smile.jpgI often think how much I am amazed at my ability to deal with what life has thrown at me. But I have become resigned to the situation and I intend to make the most out of the rest of my life as Spike would insist.
But the important thing today is Violet's birthday so I am going to keep that in the front of my thoughts today and look forward to seeing her tonight for her party.

Happy birthday Violet !!!!!!!
