Look who lit up my life at 6am Saturday morning!
My daughter, Amanda, and her husband, Brad, introduced me to my newest grandson, Jackson Allen, today.....all 8lbs 12oz of him!
There's just something about your baby having a baby that is a bit surreal. The other weirdness is that they are in Delaware where Brad serves as a C-17 pilot for the USAF, and I'm in Dallas, so I spent Friday night with the phone in my hand instead of sitting in a waiting room.
Grandmotherhood is an amazing institution, and I've gone into it's ranks full force in the last six months.
My son, Matt, and DIL , Erin brought baby Tyler into the world only 6 months ago.
He's waiting for baby Jackson to arrive as well.
Everyone told me that being a grandmother was their most joyous role, and I am learning that that is truth, but it's not because you can give them back to your children when they get fussy. It's more because you can be so much more authentic with them than you could with your own children. I know myself so much better at 58 than I did at 28, and it seems that it's just easier to release and let the unconditional love flow!
I'll be back into design mode shortly, but thanks for allowing me to detour into what REALLY matters today.
Lovey, signing off.........
