|Grandpa and Grandson|
It's Random Journal Day! A bunch of bloggers randomly open their old journals and use an entry to inspire a current blog post. But today I am not being random, I am drawn to a page from one year ago because we had a HUGE EVENT happen in our family! Our first grandchild arrived!! What an amazing and incredible year it has been!
My journal holds a little letter I wrote to my grandson a few days before he was born. I read it to his parents yesterday at his FIRST BIRTHDAY and DEDICATION party.
"September 30, 2014
You are still all comfy in your mommy today, but I am thinking of you and your soon arrival. Max, you are coming to a LOT OF LOVE! Lots of family and tons of friends have been praying for you and getting ready to welcome you into this amazing world.
Your Mommy and Daddy are so in love with you already. They are both wondering if they will be good enough parents for you. As smart and creative as they are, this is still all new territory for them. BUT I KNOW that their love for you is all the education they need to be the PERFECT PARENTS for you Max.
Today I am asking God to surround you with warmth and safety as you prepare to make your big entrance. I know that God has created a wonderful masterpiece in you. He has designed you perfectly and lovingly with great attributes, personality and adorableness!
This world is going to BE A BETTER PLACE with you in it. Your humor, creativity and KIND STRENGTH will draw people to you."
On October 3, 2014 I was sitting in their living room writing in my journal while my grandson was entering the world in the next room. The journal page is abruptly interrupted in mid sentence and then filled in later with...."Max is HERE!" What a crazy, scary and beautiful experience that was!
AND NOW HE IS ONE and today we are getting ready to go to the Texas State Fair again! I am so thankful to be here enjoying my family and making big memories!
