Well, my week with my granddaughter is over. I am exhausted. I WILL say that the world is a new and beautiful place when you have a grandchild!
One of the many wonderful things that happened during the week is the opportunity I had to spend some very special time with my son and daughter-in-law. It was amazing to watch my son become a father. It was also fun to watch Adam and Sara learn the dance of taking care of that new and tiny and helpless little girl. Sara was the feeder of the child and Adam was the changer of the diaper and they both participated in bath-time.
I watched Sara and Adam fall in love with their daughter. I saw their lives forever change. I saw the wonder in Adam’s face when he called Gwennie “my daughter” and then look at me and say with wonder “I have a daughter!” I saw Sara stop everything in her life to just take care of her baby girl. She would sit and hold her for hours, gazing with amazement into Gwennie’s little face.
And another piece of my heart now lives outside of my body.
