    Joy of joy, I became a great-grandmother on Aug. 17 to a beautiful little girl. We went up north to see here when she was just 9 hours old on Wed. and came home, tearfully, on Friday.

    She is the most precious thing in my life. She is the 1st great and born to our first grandchild, a granddaughter.

    This gave me the most wonderful feeling of joy and blessedness and made me almost forget my pain. I was on a 2 1/2 day of one of my "pretend parties". They almost make me forget the pain - but today I hurt all over and am so tired. Her first time grandpa and uncle sent me over 100 pictures of her and various members of her new family today and that cheered me so much.

    You can't imagine the thrill of living to see a great! I am so blessed - my hubby of almost 57 years, and 9 grandchildren. And I am an only child. If only my parents could see them all!

    Gentle Hugs to all of you

    I'm so happy for you!! I hope she's not too far away so that you get to see her often!

    What's her name? Again, congratulations---what a blessing children are, they can make the most painful days so much better!

    That is so wonderful, I know how happy you must be. Sorry you are hurting, but it sure was for a good cause.

    Whats the little girls name?


    Shalom, Shirl

    I remember how my mother felt when my oldest daughter, and her oldest granddaughter, made her a great-grandmother for the first time!!!
