All that is Beautiful

Recently I just found out that I am going to be a Grandma.   Like becoming a parent you begin to look at life differently.   It is a new era.  A new beginning.
One that I will cherish, embrace, and love passionately.   We have a new person joining our family.

The first question I am asked is.... " Do you know what the baby is yet? "  Do I ..... yes!  Does my daughter know .......No.   She will wait for the ultra sound and confirm what I already see.

I have already been shopping, buying the appropriate 'colour'.  I am not allowed to tell my Daughter what the baby's sex is, she wants to wait for the ultra sound. And I am good with that. I want her to feel the joy of seeing her baby on the monitor, the joy of hearing the heartbeat for the very first time. I want to hear my Daughters joy when she calls to tell me about her experience. But, I'M GOING TO BE A GRANDMA..... and I am shopping and preparing already. 

A very good friend of mine once said having a grandchild is wonderful.   When the grandchild is born of your Daughter, it's down right nerve racking.   At the time I remember thinking what an odd thing to say, does this mean when it's your sons baby don't worry? But now I have a glimpse of what she meant.
My daughter has told me already that I don't need to check up on her every day or at least not twice a day.  Reluctantly I will back off to maybe one phone call every other day..... OK - I WILL TRY not to call each and every day. But hey, I'm going to be a Grandma!

Time has slowed down all of a sudden and it feels it will take forever for May to get here so we can greet the newest addition to our family. I can't wait to cradle, to kiss and snuggle the next generation..... My first grandchild.   I can't wait to see my baby with her baby.  I can remember so clearly the first day holding my baby, and now 27 years later I will watch her with her first child.  I am excited - OVER THE MOON - it is a reflection of all that it beautiful.

The white rabbit brought me the ultimate gift.....   A precious Grand-baby.
I am not allowed to tell if it's pink or blue .....but my friends know. It brings to mind the old verse: 'Pink or Blue, we'll love you'. And we will, this baby will be surrounded by love.

I do know this; my Husband and I, and our children, will all welcome with open hearts our newest family member.

Hey! I'm going to be a Grandma!!

    A baby is such a gift; and a grandbaby is just that much more special.

    I send gentle, loving White Light to surround you, your beautiful daughter, and the tiny New Life who is excitedly growing inside her.
    Sending you Love, My Friend!
