The Apple of My Eye


This is Sam, more formally known as Samuel Eugene Johnson, who was born on February 1, 2006.
. . . .
Our lives are enriched beyond what we ever would have anticipated. Dottie and other friends had said, "Grandchildren are the best yet." I knew they were wrong: What could be better than my own children?
. . . .
They were not wrong. Sam is the best thing ever. He's recently perfected the art of the toothless grin and when he does it, we just melt.
. . . .
In this photo, Sam is lying on the quilt that the Fat Quarters women (my on-line quilting group) made as a gift for me. While I've been a participant, and even an instigator, of these gift quilts for our members, opening the present made my eyes fill and my throat tighten. Grandchildren are the best. But friends are right up there.
