There once was a little girl
whose Grandma loved her so dearly
she wanted to paint her portrait
to honor her first birthday.
Though the painting didn’t nearly capture
the little girl’s character and charm and beauty,
hopefully she will
there once was a Grandma
who wanted her to remember
how much she meant to her
and how much she was loved
that she tried to paint her portrait
and it was done with lots of love.
My second granddaughter recently celebrated her first birthday. This painting is not meant to be framed or hung, and it surely doesn’t come close to depicting her beauty. But it was painted to be tucked in a memory box as a little keepsake and token of love. I am going to try to paint a portrait every year of each of my grandchildren for the sole purpose of tucking it away to save. I like to think that perhaps one day when I am gone, they will occasionally look at them and cherish them as keepsakes of a Grandma that loved them with her whole heart and soul and bring back sweet memories of happy times spent together. Love you Sweet Baby Girl!
Cheers & Hugs,
