01 Aug "Mimi" has a whole new meaning…..
Monday, July 24, 2017 is a very special day. Our first grand child was born. He arrived 3 weeks early and he is perfect in every way.
Both of my sisters have grandchildren and shared how Alan and I would experience feelings of love beyond words for this new grand baby. The love my husband and I feel for this boy is as special as the love we feel for our son. Love beyond words.
The moment we saw this newborn baby boy, our world changed in wonderful ways. His face, his fingers, arms, legs, toes… even his cry is precious. Memories of when our son was born came in to our thoughts and tears of joy flowed on our cheeks.
Holding this new baby gave me a feeling of peace and comfort. I began to think of all the wonderful people who love him and will have important roles in his life. Blessings from God.
We have prayed for this child, his Daddy, his Mommy and the whole family. We pray that he will have the desire to know God and to show God’s love to others. We pray for good health for the whole family. Most of all, we give thanks to God for the precious blessing of this child. Thank You God. Your love endures forever.
Another special blessing is watching our son and daughter-in-love shower their new child with love that only a parent can give. The natural instinct both of them have to be parents is truly heartwarming to see. From the moment of his birth, this child was shown true love and devotion by his parents. Seeing our son and his wife loving their child is a truly amazing experience. Alan and I are so very proud of them.
I have been called “Mimi” by my family for a few years now. And, I will continue to be called “Mimi” unless this dear child wants to give me another name. 🙂 As for right now,
“Mimi” has a whole new meaning and I love the new meaning….. Grandmother.
Have a blessed week,

Congratulations!! He is sooo cute!
Being a grandparent is such a blessing. One of my clients use to say, “You love your children but you fall in love with your grandchildren”.
Blessings to you and your family.
