MY BITTERSWEET The family circle keeps on growing. Today is going to be a little bittersweet, but hopefully joyful too. I'm heading up to the hospital to set with my dad and then this afternoon I get to go with Ashley's family to see the 3-D ultrasound of our new Lucianna. I am so excited to see what she "looks" like and it will be such a new experience for me. On Easter Sunday we all watched the ultra-sound video from Linda (Behind My Red Door) and now I get so see my own little granddaughter!Also, my sister-in-law Cyndy is on her way to the hospital on the other side of the state to await the birth of her first grandson. What a wonderful day in her life!
Some things are just astonishing! Last evening Abbey came to the hospital to see my dad. When she walked up to his bed, he just lit up. He held out his hand and said "I'll be home to play hide and seek with you soon. I love you." Nobody could believe it! Hope springs eternal. That little great-granddaughter means the world to him and she loves him so much too.
Again, thanks to all of you for your kind, wonderful comments. This blog seems to be my therapy when I get home from the hospital each night. It is just mind-boggling how a group of perfect strangers can become such great friends through their writings and sharings. One of these days I would love to meet each and every one of you!
Maybe today will be the day of miracles...
