THIS IS WRENNA DAWN..IN ALASKA
She is an amazing young woman.
She recently traveled to Alaska by way of the Alcon Highway..she traveled with her friend, Jason. She worked as a guide which is what she is trained to do.
I could not be prouder ...
...of her sweetness
(Wren and Jason. Alaska.)
her love of friends, family...and me! Yes, ME!
I admire her love of nature...her respect for it.
her ability to conquer...I salute her independence.
When she graduated from high school she and with her father went on foot across the United States..met all sorts of local folks..got to know her country..it's grass roots, which is what she wanted. They went on foot with occassional rides. Again, I was in a tizzy!!
She was in the Oregon news.
She went to Costa Rica ...alone this time ..a couple of years ago..when she was just nineteen or so and this time I literally lost sleep and sometimes cried when I didn't hear from her for awhile...
She knew no one. She was on an adventure...and went into the wilderness..alone. Met people..and made dear friends everywhere she went.
She is my granddaughter and next to the youngest of the fourteen. Her brother is the youngest.
She is the one who says she will take care of me when I get old.. :)
I don't know anyone who knows Wren that doesn't love her and admire her.
And..listen to this... :) The last time I saw her she said "Grandma, can I one day have your Halloween collection?" Not sure why that touched me so much, but it did. I will make certain she gets it.
All fourteen of my now grown grandchildren are making me so proud.
Why did I post about her? Who knows? It's just that sometimes my heart is so full of love for all of them..and tonight I just wanted you to know a bit about Wrenna.
She is coming to visit me in March....ask me if I am excited...go ahead..ask...:)
I have so much to be grateful for that I cannot even begin to count my blessings..
Did I tell you she is off to Spain soon? The land of her great, great grandfather, Pacifico, Franko Castillo. I should tell her.....
No Valentine decor...maybe next time?
My love to all,
P.S. Sometimes life sort of takes over and I drifted from my blog..no, not to some other media outlet like facebook or one of those..just...drifted.
