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!!

The Harvest Moon is the full Moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox (about Sept. 23), in two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October. The full moon tonight is also known appropriately as the Shedding Moon or the Falling Leaf Moon.

The Harvest Moon seems to be bigger or brighter or more colorful than other full moons. This is the moon time when the veil between our world and the spirit world are at its thinnest. Use this time for spiritual growth, open up your third eye and get in touch with your intuitive center.   If there's a deceased relative that you wish to contact, this is a great month to do it.  This is the time to seek inner peace and truth.  Use tonight's full moon to cleanse and charge your crystals and your tarot cards. 

Enjoy the Harvest Moon
