A Garden Patch

 Once upon a time there were the two little Patch Granddaughters. They loved to visit Grandmother Patch's garden and dress up in old-fashioned clothes that their grandmother made for their Aunt Jennie Patch, and their mother, Polly Patch back in the 1970's. They held their little fingers in peace signs, a remnant symbol of years gone by.
As the years passed, these darling little granddaughters grew up and moved far away. They went off to college and live in different states, but still manage to remain close and see each other almost everyday through the magic of the Internet and a program called Skype. Amazing! Mary, our blond beauty, just turned 19 and is a sophomore at BYU-Idaho. Becky is at BYU in Provo, married to the love of her life, and oh! Look at the next picture, she is bringing on the next generation of Patch descendants!
 
I think she is rather pleased about this, what do you think? 
Grandmother Patch is so proud of these darling girls and what fine young women they have grown into.
It is, however, Grandmother Patch's dream that someday the children will return to her garden.
It won't be long!

NO way are you going to be a great grandma!! You're too young for them to do this to you, lol! Oh, but what a joy this new little baby will be in your lives and the life of your granddaughter (and daughter too!). Babies, the gift from God that just keeps on giving! Love it!

I hear "The Circle of Life" being played in the background as I read this! Too cute: the photo from not-that-long ago; and too precious, the mommy-to-be. Yes, the babies will most definitely return one day to play in Gramma Patch's garden ... blessings come full circle.
