We're Having A Baby, Part III

  1. In the midst of our family's sadness and grief over the imminent death of my brother-in-law, one tiny bright spot is appearing on the horizon: in about 36 hours, our third grandchild, Cale Wiley, will be ushered into the world via C-section.:spin:

    And I can't help thinking this whole experience is eerily like a Danielle Steel novel......one life begins just as another is ending; a life for a life. It's not even hard to imagine the two passing close by each other on their separate journeys as the weary warrior quietly lays down his arms, and a new life-force is brought screaming into the light.

    Welcome to Earth, little Cale! Prepare to be enchanted...........

    Wow Marla - I'm so happy and sad for you.

    Focus on baby Cale . .. . what a wonderful grandma you are. In a way I can't wait - but none of my kids are married yet. So, I'd rather they waited

    Just think - when Danny is old enough to give me grandkids, my older kids' kids will be in college and I'll be . . .. . nevermind.

    Hugs to you my dear.

    Isn't life funny that way - I realized - some years later - that my youngest daughter (now nearly 20) was probably conceived within hours of my grandfathers passing.

    What a beautiful thought - best wishes to your new baby and a peaceful journey to your brother in law.
