On this day four years ago, God blessed us with a precious little granddaughter. Her name is Avery Grace, and she is everything we always dreamed she would be ... and so much more.
In honor of Avery's birthday today, I created a slideshow for my family, but thought I would share it with you too, since many of you have come to know Avery through my stories and pictures here at "Southern Lagniappe."
Thank you, Lord, for blessing our lives with this little bundle of sunshine and joy named Avery Grace. Please watch over her and keep her safe from harm all the days of her life, and let her know how much she is loved. Amen.
The word lagniappe, as defined by Webster's, means "something given or obtained gratuitously, or by way of good measure."
"Time never turns backwards
Its old charms to give,
In photographs only
Can yesterdays live."
