|Faith & Naomi - taking the world by storm!|
Over the next months, you are hardly aware that those precious digits are growing and changing. They still seem so delicate and miraculous. I felt like that with all my sons, and with each of my grandbabies, as well.
My youngest grands - the twin girlies, are fast approaching two years. It doesn't seem possible it has been that long, and yet, it doesn't seem possible that they haven't always been part of the family. We have marveled at each step of their development, not taking anything for granted: their birth - impossible early, their size - less than 2 1/2 pounds between them!, their fragile bodies - fearfully and wonderfully made. We hardly dared to hope, but couldn't bear to do otherwise.
Recently, I was out of town and hadn't seen Hope and Naomi for a couple of weeks. It's not possible, of course, that they actually changed immeasurably in that period of time, but my eyes don't believe what my head is telling me. They seem to have grow inches and pounds in that short time! And where their tentative steps had to be coaxed before, now they were on the move! Their next steps turned out to be, well, steps!
|From humble beginnings|
Thank you, God, for miracles and blessing that stretch and grow. Thank you, God, for Faith and Naomi! Once, again, I am the most blessed Granma I know.
