A few years ago I held this little bundle for the first time – our first grandchild.
A redhead!
Just like her other grandma and my grandfather.

Two years on there was a  mass of red curls as well – as you see here on her swing with The Golfer

Then came school and all the teasing and name caling – not nice for a quiet (sensitive, glasses wearing, not one of the ‘in crowd’) person like our little redhead.  As she grew older (last years of high school) it had turned to bullying so she coloured her hair DARK.  Very dark – so you would pass her in the street and not realise who it was.

Slowly she has grown it all out and now we are back to the original colour.  Turning 21 last month and getting her licence seems to have brought ‘the real person’ to the front again.  A confident happy person.

She even posted this great video on her fb page – remarking ‘this is me’

I realise we all go through changes in our life – physical and mental
and they are ‘ours’ to own whether others like them or not
This change in our little redhead brings relief for us at her happiness and
Big smiles from this grandma 🙂
