Becoming Grandma:2

I remember that being pregnant took over my whole being. Anything else that was going on the world just didn’t seem to matter much. My whole focus was on this new life growing inside me.

I spoke to a friend of mine who told me that she was pregnant and delivered her child during the October crisis in Montreal. And it went right past her. Her total focus was on this new life.

And now I watch my daughter and listen to her and see the same dynamic. And it doesn’t surprise me.

What does surprise me is that I am having much the same experience now, as a potential grandmother. When I waken I am not considering what work waits for me in the office. I am thinking about my daughter and daughter-in-law. More and more it’s my pending grandparenthood which occupies my mind and heart. And I love it.

I am dreaming about my coming grandchildren.

No-one told me about this.

Am I the only one?

    No, and it only gets better. Whoever said “The most precious jewels you will ever have around your neck are the arms of your grandchildren” was right on!!! Sincere congratulations Kathy and John. I am sooooo happy for you and your children. What a blessing to have them both expecting at the same time!
