new beginnings

Today I became a grandma. To say it feels great is an understatement. There's no words to explain how I'm feeling right now. I guess a mix between wanting to cry and cry! Yet I've not even held my little grandson in my arms. Nor have I given him any smooches. I was given an opportunity to hold him, but declined. I wanted little Hunter James to enjoy the love and security in the arms of his momma and daddy for today. There will be plenty more days for cuddling. I did talk to him though. Got close enough so he could smell all the sweetness and goodness that comes with baking sugar cookies all day! As the days and years go by every time he gets a whiff of baking, he'll have fond thoughts of me!

I know my son will be a good father but when I walked into their room today and saw him holding his precious little bundle, just grinning ear to ear, I knew, without a doubt, that this child will have an everlasting impact on my son's life. It's funny how babies do that.

Besides that, today is my 100th post!

WOW!! This is a great day indeed! Congratulations on your grandson...how exciting for all of you. I can just imagine the emotions you are feeling...I'm sure if I ever have that blessing in my life...I will be filled with many emotions...and yes...lots and lots of tears. The moment you described of seeing your son hold his son...well, that was just the sweetest...I may have made a complete ninny out of myself...I'm not sure if I saw my son holding his son/daughter...that I wouldn't just fall to floor crying...I can't wait though...and I'm thrilled for you!!! Can't wait to see pictures of YOU holding him...again, Congratulations...now get over to see him...and give him tons of Nana kisses...or whatever you're going to be called...I guess he will decide that!

Congrats on your 100th post, too...

Blessings...
