I know that I have been shirking my blog responsibilities. I am sorry about that, but I hope that once I’ve explained that you’ll agree that it is for a good reason. I am typing this post, not from my usual home in the big state of Texas, but in Los Angeles. My middle child, B. and her husband, K. live in sunny California. Aside from the fact that I welcome any opportunity to see them, my sole reason for this journey was to see a person that I had yet to meet. You see, B. was pregnant, and due anytime. As it happened, I arrived 3 days before my new g’child, a boy, entered this world. I was there to support my daughter as she soldiered through an arduous labor, and to witness the moment when mother and child became two not one. I am still processing the event, but I do know that a miracle happened that day–the sweet miracle of life. I feel blessed to have been a part of it.
Anyway, I want you to know that my blog is still a priority. Nevertheless, it goes without saying that some things trump it, and this is one of them. My priority right now is to help my amazing daughter in her early days of motherhood and if at all possible, to form a g’mom bond with my beautiful g’son. I will return to posting when I return home. I hope that you will understand and have patience with me.
Blessings and love, Lydia
