Our first grand child was born today, and 7:49 p.m. She was 7 lbs., 13 oz., 20″, and she has amazing hands. Well heck, all of her is amazing.
Our daughter Sarah labored like a champ, and our son in law Caleb coached her wonderfully. Caleb’s mom Marianne is a nurse and supported and stepped in as needed. My wife Debbie was there for incredible moral support.
By the time Isabella was born, all of our kids were there (Chris & Melissa, Jon), as well as Paul, Caleb’s dad, and Caleb’s two brothers (Noah & Luke). With our loved ones around us, the blessing was complete. It was a moment captured in my mind and heart, and I am grateful to God.
It seems like yesterday that I coached Debbie as she brought Sarah into the world. Now my little girl is a mom, and I am a grandpa. God is good. These are the simple yet profound blessings of life. There is nothing like it.
Thanks to all for prayers and support.
