Happy Birthday to Me…

It’s been a long time since I scrapped a page about myself, so when I saw the “What’s in a Name Challenge” over at The Daily Digi, I just had to do one for my birthday.

This picture was taken when I was four and a half months old. 

Journaling reads: “My Grandpa Paul had called me Mary for as long as I could remember.  I wouldn’t have minded, except that my name isn’t Mary.  One day, when I was about ten years old, I asked him in exasperation, “Grandpa, do you even know my name?”  “Well, sure,” he said, “Your name is Virginia.”  “Then why do you always call me Mary?” I asked.  He smiled, and replied, “Because, sweetheart, you look just like my mother.”  I didn’t mind being called Mary so much after that, but Grandpa made it a point to call me by my name.”

I promise I haven’t forgotten about the C is for Colic template link, I have just been swamped with the Lifting Hopes Charity Collab Kit.  I will get your template link up by the end of the weekend with any luck!

Be blessed!
