FAITH-FILLED LIVING | SWEET TREASURES | SIMPLE PLEASURES

I'm a Grandma!


On Tuesday, March 30th at 10:16 PM, Little Caleb made his debut!  And, I officially took on my role as Nana KJ!  Lorraine Lemos, the paternal grandmother, and I were both honored to witness the emergence of this precious life.


It was strange being present at a birth where I was now a  spectator, and yet feeling deeply for the discomfort of my daughter, Briana.  It was also affirming to connect with my daughter on a new level, sharing an understanding of something that can only be experienced.


Just as the windows of heaven opened when I held Briana, my eldest, for the first time, a brand new capacity for love enveloped my heart.  No turning back...
