I’m a grandma!! My perfect grandson was born 3/29/24. To say I feel blessed is an understatement. It wasn’t clear I’d be able to have a grandchild so his coming is the answer to a fervent prayer. But it’s also a reminder that not everyone who wants a child is able to have a child. It’s a reminder that feeling blessed does not have to be defined by getting what we want, but feeling blessed by God for whatever He has provided. Those that grieve are blessed by those who comfort. We are blessed to have life when it is taken away from those we love. Blessed by doctors as we battle health issues. Blessed with hope when it feels like fear weighs us down. Blessed with forgiveness even when we feel condemned. We may not receive the blessings we want but we can receive the blessings offered to us.

So, I gratefully accept congratulations from those that love me but focus on the blessings given to me. Grateful to the God I worship that has allowed me the great privilege to be a grandma when I’ve wanted to be one for so many years. Now that he’s here, I collect the pictures my daughter sends with joy. He lives in Las Vegas, so I eagerly anticipate getting to see him again even as I grieve being apart.

I look forward to sharing God’s love with my grandson knowing as much as I love him, God loves him more. My daughter says she wanted a boy so she could raise him up to be a good man in a world that is frequently not very good. This child is surrounded by love. He is a blessing to me and his family and a reminder of the ultimate goodness of God.
