I have a grand daughter. She is well and apparently feeding well. She is my son Phil and his wife Natashas' baby they have named Edith. He let us know by the shortest text you could think of while I was completing my blog post last night; "She's out!"
He also got confirmation today about being the successful applicant for a good job he wanted. He really is quite a gifted man, who lacks a bit of self-confidence. I am glad his employers recognised his worth. (He has worked for them on contract before) I rang him to congratulate him and heard my grand daughter crying, demanding to be fed as he answered the phone.
I have often been off hand about babies... cynical about the way people go gaga over them. But here is a new life with all that potential, a budding personality and it is the start of another sacred journey. It really is quite awesome and mind blowing. She is fortunate, she has gifted responsible parents who wanted her. Bless you my wee girl, may your journey be rich and fulfilling. May your parents be given all the wisdom, patience and love they need as you grow up. May you continue to live in an atmosphere of welcoming, affirming love. May my boy be a better dad than his dad. I hope he has learned from my mistakes.
I am so pleased for the three of them. Here are some pics....
