Twenty Years


Twenty years ago today, I could see it snowing from my hospital window.  Snowing!  In May??  But I didn’t really care, because I had much more important things on my mind.  About 7:30 that evening, the long wait was over, and I held my newborn daughter in my arms.  As I looked at her, I marveled at this perfect little person entrusted to our keeping–her little fists, her tiny puckered mouth, her swirl of gold-red hair, her trusting eyes. 

And tonight, once again, I looked into the eyes of a newborn–my daughter’s daughter.  And again I marvel.  How can it have been twenty years already?  Where did the time go?  My little girl has a little girl of her own? 

And life goes on…one generation to the next. 


Tonight, our son got a picture of Amy with a BIG smile.

Tomorrow she will be four weeks old.  Already.

What a beautiful gift a baby is.  Thank you, Dot, for being a wonderful daughter, and for giving us a gorgeous granddaughter.    Happy birthday!

God is so good!

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.
