IT'S A GIRL!

"A new baby is like the beginning of all things ~ wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities." ~Eda J. Le Shan

Yesterday I held our new granddaughter in my arms for the first time. So small...so perfectly formed...a new life begins, and those who love her will never be the same.
It was such an emotional experience to see our son enjoying the role of a new dad. It was the happiest I have ever seen him, with the exception of the day he was married. How grateful I am for a loving daughter-in-law who has made his life so blessed and complete.
Little Aven is a lucky girl ~ she has entered the world and into a family that already loves her extravagantly. Parents, grandparents, a sister, aunts, uncles, and many distant relatives are rejoicing in her arrival.
Today I thank God for blessing us so abundantly, for knitting together our son's family, for creating this beautiful new life, and for the gift of being a part of it. My prayer for little Aven Victoria is that she will always know how unconditionally loved she is ~ that she will grow and develop into her full potential, using her gifts and talents ~ that God's hand of protection, health, and favor will always be upon her ~ and that her joy will know no bounds.
Thank you Matt and Tara for this precious addition to our family. I am honored to be a grandma to your sweet daughter, and I will wear this title with reverence and immense joy.

"Ten fingers,
Ten toes
She's laughter and teardrops
So small and brand new
And amazingly angelic
She's sent to bless you
She's one special baby
The best of life's treasure
And will grant and bless you
Many hours of great pleasure."
