Birthday Boy!

One year ago right now I was on "pins and needles" wondering if we would be able to make it to Stillwater in time for the birth of our first Grandchild. The good Lord saw to it that we were there by having Bridget's Dr. feel it best to induce her, due to high blood pressure. We arrived the evening of Sept. 30th and Bridget was induced on the morning of Oct. 2nd. Becoming a grandparent is all that I had heard it would be and more. I would have never dreamed that I could feel the love in my heart such as I felt when our own children were born, but let me assure you, the love was full to overflowing when I laid my eyes on that precious little Grandson. The nurse's remark when I took my first look at Clancy was, "I think we're witnessing a Grandmother being born." For sure!!

This past week-end we had the joy to celebrate Clancy's first birthday. Yes, I'm well aware that he has no idea that he is about to be one year old, but, none the less, I feel sure he is well aware of how much he is loved and how much we enjoyed celebrating his first year of life.

Clancy wasn't exactly sure what to do with his cake, but after his Daddy cut a small section out for him, he realized that it was okay for him to dig in, and he did.

It is the desire of my heart to be a Grandmother that my grandchildren will always enjoy being with and making memories. But, more importantly, that they will see the love of God in my heart and life and know the greatest desire their CiCi has for them is to know and love God and accept Him, and be all that He intends for them to be.
