FLASH! BREAKING NEWS!

Welcome sweet Eleanor Joy!  The newest addition to my family is my FIRST Grand!  Miss Eleanor joined us early this morning.  Her precious Mommy had a very short, sweet labor.  When my son, Paul, called me to tell me they had just arrived at the hospital at 7 a.m. - he called back less than two hours later with the joyful news.  He had tears and laughter in his voice as he told me that he cut the cord.  Can you tell I am busting my buttons?  She arrived a bit early, but weighed in at 5 lbs, 11 oz.  That is a nice size bundle.


God bless this little family - now to get busy with baby girl things in the making.  For some reason, I cannot concentrate on anything.  I don't know when I will get to see the wee one in person but I am hoping that the Lord will make a way SOONER rather than later.  And I suppose I will enter the ranks of those giddy, rabid grandmothers that I have never totally understood.  More than anything, I am thankful that the Lord has blessed this dear couple with the desire of their heart.
