One of my wildest dreams is about to be realized... I am going to be a grandmother. As you are all aware my eldest daughter is living abroad and pregnant with her first child. Wow, what a feeling to be told that you are going to be a grandparent. It has caused me to reflect on the days when it was just her and I, first growing inside me and then arriving in my world, tiny and perfect. She has remained both to me, this child bright and engaging bringing so much to my life. Now a beautiful young woman, she is far away from me at a time where I long to be witness to her experience as a first time mom.
They are great keeping us informed and skyping with a web cam, but it is not the same. I am longing for the days when I can easily visit her again, see that brilliant smile, linger over a lunch and listen to her laugh and soon the laugh of my grandson and his mommy. In the mean time I will prepare for his arrival knitting and enjoying shopping for him. We all await his safe arrival, but I am sure not nearly as much as they do.
So enjoy my darling, and see you soon.
