G is for Grand Child
ok, ok, ok
Being a grand parent isn't a universal experience in life like aging!
You don't even need to be retired to become a grand parent!
But if you had a grand child like this one ...
wouldn't you take any excuse to show her off if she was your
In addition, it shows off my knitting and crocheting projects - a hobby in retirement!!
Any excuse to show off this beautiful little person!
As long as I am a little bit off topic, let me share with you just how much of a miracle this little girl is to me.
I am the mother of two enormously wonderful and successful people: a son and a daughter. I have always said - raising children is like walking through a mine field - some of us make it successfully and some of us don't. I think I made it successfully.
Through my kids adult years - having children of their own never seemed to be on their radar - at least not that they shared with me. Both of them now are in their 40s. The paths of their lives seem set - and I was content. They are happy, successful and responsible people. What more could a mother want for her children. I accepted the fact that I would not be a grandmother.
When my son announced that he and wife were expecting a child - I remember initial feelings of disbelief, needing to take deep breaths, covering my face with my hands to absorb this new bit of unbelievable information in private - while tears began to form. My God .. could this be happening!!
When this beautiful little person was born (and she was beautiful and very alert at birth) - all I could think of was ... There is a God and I guess I did something right in my 70 years on this earth!

Grand children are the icing on the cake of life!
I was happy with just the cake.
I am thrilled beyond measure with the icing.
