A striking resemblance

Allen Charlotte 2


What a whirlwind week. I visited my beautiful new granddaughter in the hospital on Tuesday and on Wednesday my long awaited memoir proof showed up on my doorstep. Charlotte is gorgeous, with a head full of dark hair she looked like a female version of Allen when he was born. When Allen, Tommy, and I arrived at the hospital our new little beauty was in the middle of her first photo shoot. The smart people at Santa Teresa Hospital apparently have a long time tradition of sending a photographer to mother and babies room the day they are scheduled to leave to take wonderful photos which can be ordered individually or put into an album. Charlotte’s other grandma brought the sweetest little pink dress and the talented photographer went to work taking heart wrenching photos that you just had to have. She then showed them to us on her computer arranged in a beautiful album which she maneuvered to the liking of Liz, Charlotte’s mama. We all got to check it out and offer our opinions and order the photos that we wanted. I opted for the CD so that I can make many albums to share on my own. We grandmas went in on a package saving us both money but it was not inexpensive. It was a wonderful thing but I was glad that kind of thing wasn’t available when Allen was born. As a seventeen year old single mother I wouldn’t have been able to afford the pictures and it would have killed me. I only have my Polaroid’s but looking at them today still makes me smile.


There is so much on the horizon that it almost makes me dizzy. My book launch is scheduled for next Saturday and it will be by the grace of god if all the books I ordered get here on time. He’s been taking great care of me so I know He’s got this one handled too. I’m still filling holes in my Fourth of July weekend schedule and the buzz for our first rally in five years is tremendous. God is so good.

Allen and Charlotte
