As I look through today’s 100 plus images — and in particular this one below — it makes me wish that every babe born into the world could be welcomed with the same awe and joy as my new grandchild, Reese Caroline, born shortly after noon today. Because babes deserve no less than this — and so much more love than we can ever bestow upon them. But I pray God blesses our widow mites of love as we do our best everyday. And that God bless these newborns in particular — both parents and child.

Oh, my! There’s nothing at all “everyday” about this new life, or that of her parents and family.
Congratulations! Somehow, I think I have a sense of how you’ll be spending this day!
Thank you, Viv — having a newborn grandchild again is heavenly. Words — at least mine — can’t capture the joy pouring out of my heart. Hope I don’t slosh too terribly much in the days ahead.:)
Thank you, Linda.
I’ve already visited once today. So I’m back home for a bit, stirring up love in the form of my best grandmother’s cookies; don’t grandmothers and sugar cookies go hand-in-hand?
I try not to overstay my welcome, with so many loved ones vying for a glimpse of our newest family member. I’ll go up again later this afternoon with a batch of home-made Sweeties, which you may recall are perfectly pink, in honor of a new granddaughter — and her father Joe, who loves these best of all my cooking — and I’ve made plenty, since my four other grandchildren are scheduled to come greet and meet their new little cousin.
But, yes, your right — though new births are an everyday occurrence everywhere — it’s been seven long years in our family. And it’s so wonderful to be able to pause everyday life to dance circles around this new little word of love from God.
