Yesterday my fourth grandson, Samuel, was born. And, yesterday a mother was born as well. Sam is my oldest daughter’s first baby. It was such a blessing to witness the births of two new lives…indeed, three new lives! As William Blake wrote:
“My mother groaned, my father wept,
into the dangerous world I leapt.”
― William Blake
Mommy groaned and Daddy wept…as Sam took his first breath and cried for the first time. We are all so grateful that both she and her new baby are doing fine….Kelly ( mommy) has a genetic blood disorder which made her pregnancy one which was considered “high risk”. Which made me a wreck! But, in spite of all that could have gone wrong…everything went right.
“Every child begins the world again….” ~Henry David Thoreau
And so it is…my world has begun for the fourth time….
