When There Are No Words

Today, this afternoon, my fourth beautiful grand baby was born. Let me introduce you to Brooklyn Sage Jackson! No matter how crazy this world is of ours, or whatever is going on in my life, a new grand baby is like a magic eraser. My heart takes total control over my brain and it feels good!

My son, holding his second daughter and I know he will spoil her just as much as he does Morgan. And actually Bryce is pretty fond of his niece Riley and nephew Bodhi. I'm guessing Bodhi will have plenty of fun chasing the little girls around him so he will always have someone one to tease. Just like his Uncle Bryce did with his sisters!!

I wonder what Brooklyn will look like in a few months, in a year. They grow and change so very, very fast. As I always say, in a blink of an eye, they turn another year older.

This is the forth picture I have like the one above. I always hold each of my precious new grand babies close to me. I study their face, I love their tiny hands and most of all, their innocence. We all have lots going on in our lives that take us away from what we love. I've worked so, so hard this past year on a little project I had to do and I was so angry because it took me away from Riley, Bodhi, Morgan because I felt my time was so taken up by paperwork. Today, as I held that precious brand new baby of mine in my arms, all those thoughts were going through my head. And you know, Gramma's back and I'm not going to waste any of my time doing things that in the end don't benefit me anyway. Sometimes we find answers in places we never would have expected. Today, my answers came in the most loving and happy way it could. Love to all my family and friends! Today is good!!

Congratulations to the whole family. Today a baby was born and a big sister made.
Children are a blessing and grandchildren are supposed to be even better. I can't imagine. Turn inward. Health, peace and love. We need little more.
Enjoy sweet Sue.

Your post brought tears to my eyes! I get the whole innocence comment. I always run to my son, nieces or nephews when I'm feeling down. Just hugging them makes me feel better. Congrats!
