One of Many Reasons Why...

Okay, so I won't go into the OTHER reasons I adore this woman, my friend Carol. (The majority would have you questioning our sanity. (rightfully so!) Others are too close to my heart.)

But this one reason, this ONE reason is worth sharing with the world!

Carol's son and his wife just returned from Africa where they finally had the joy of meeting Aberash, their now youngest of three daughters.

And all indications are (proof's in the pictures!) Aberash is very happy and comfortable in her new home.

A retired elementary educator, Carol is a perfect mentor--on so many levels-- for this delightful, young girl. She volunteers several times a week both at a school and a local hospital, and still pays weekly visits to a colleague who suffered a stroke many years back. She's one of funniest women you could ever hope to meet, and Aberash will learn first-hand from "Gram" that she can succeed at anything she sets her mind to.

So, there you have it...Aberash will come up with her own list of reasons WHY. This is just one of mine...

Aberash is adorable! And, I LOVE her name!!

Okay, I gotta admit Carol is a super person. I feel privileged to have know her for so MANY (cough) years!

Just hope Aberash is prepared for her new grandmother's (warped) sense of humor!! (heh-heh)

Love ya, AC!

Boy are you right--the proof is in the picture (actually both of them).
Aberash is darling. The twinkle in her eye and her engaging smile make her spirit literally leap from my computer screen. But she sparkles even more in the company of her Gram.
I can see why you and Carol are such close friends. It's people like her who truly light up the world!

What a sweet comment, Eileen...And you, too, Mary.

Doesn't it do your heart good to see people who give of themselves? What inspiration!

And add the title of WOOFer or Feisty to that, and you've got the makings for a fairly amazing woman!
