Blessings uncounted, milestones

"Congratulations, Granddad," said my daughter Dallas Bell, 18 years ago, calling at night to announce the birth of she and Todd's first child...Erin Ann Bell, a milestone of blessings. I got to see her a few months later at their home in Durham, N.C.
Tonight, I'll be able to watch her walk across the stage at Canyon High School, Texas,  in a pre-recorded virtual graduation, another milestone of blessings.
I've bragged before on her and will some more, but just let me say that this wonderful young woman will be attending Texas A&M University this fall, in pre-engineering.
So here is a photo her mother took recently,  one of Granddad babysitting long ago, plus the two sides of her graduation announcement.
So thankful and proud I'm "bustin' my buttons."
