• G - Grand Child

    G is for Grand Child

    ok, ok, ok

    I know!!

    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 ...

    Seriously ... 
    wouldn't you take any excuse to show her off if she was your 
    grand baby?

    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!

    Just learning to sit.  She was pleased with herself!

    Eskarina is always fascinated with her granddad's glasses.
    He is legally blind and wears them to control bright light situations.

    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.
