We celebrated our granddaughter's birthday this past weekend at the Aquatic Centre in Prince George. I watched from the sidelines and thought, she looks so small compared to everyone else.
Selena is 7 now. Young in numbers, but if you look closely, you'll see an old soul.That's her little brother Reece in the background.
When I say old soul, I'm referring to the expression in Selena's brilliant blue eyes. There's such wisdom there.
Yes, we all look upon our children and see things that no one else notices. And we assume we're here to teach them and guide them. Already, when I make a statement, Reece's response (he's 4) is a pact, "I know."
Vera is Selena's 93-year-old great grandmother. I meant to take a picture of just the two of them to show you the similarities, but I got caught up on the festivities. Vera and Selena have the same eyes.
The only difference is Vera's confusion is more prevalent.
