A new little sweetheart entered my life this last weekend. Her dark hair, dark eyes, and sweet spirit reminded me why I have chosen to make motherhood and home the center of my life. She was born in the wee hours Saturday, and watching my youngest son support his wife (who was a champ!) during labor, and then hold his daughter for the first time was one of the most moving experiences of my life. His parents will be amazing; they are committed to doing all they can to care for, teach, protect, and encourage this new life. It is never easy, but they’ll do just fine.
Nothing compares with the joy to be found in home and family. I love being a grandma!
