Grand-parenthood awaits me. Our middle daughter and her husband are expecting our first grandchild, a little girl. Sugar and spice and everything nice. And we can’t wait.
But that’s exactly what we must do. Wait. So as the due date nears, we’re just hanging around waiting for our granddaughter to make her appearance. And to kiss those little toes that will fill these tiny little socks.
You know that old saying, “Good things come to those who wait.”
I’m having a hard time waiting for this good gift, this little blessing, from the Lord. But wait, we will. She will arrive when she is ready and Papa and I are more than ready to be her grandparents. We’re ready for our family to start connecting the dots.
“Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation.” ~Lois Wyse
