My Friend Toni

My friend Toni is amazing for many reasons. One of them is she never gives you the response you might expect. Let me give you an example, she has never been {gasp, dare I say} a fan of children. She subscribed to the theory that they should be seen and not heard, that is until her grandson was born. This little boy has given her a new lease on life! She is so in love with him, it just warms my heart to see them together. He calls her Ya Ya, which Toni tells me is the Greek word for Grandmother. This is something he just started doing on his own and Toni has declared this much more acceptable than the American version. You go Ya Ya! Speaking of love, this quote pretty much sums it up. "Love is the vital essence that pervades and permeates, from the center to the circumference, the graduating circles of all thought and action. Love is the talisman of human weal and woe - the open sesame to every soul."
Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Spring is definetly in the air in the south. It was a beautiful day for the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Savannah. The azaleas and dogwoods are blooming and every thing is just beautiful! Sarah Beth recently celebrated her 4th birthday. That little girl really has my heart. She loves the bling and is all about her dress up dresses. I am told she cooks in her kitchen everyday. She loves to climb, swing and hide and seek. This year she loves her bitty twin brother best of all. Love you
