It happens. Some thing so miraculous...momentous...amazing - stops me.
All else falls away. No thing other matters.
I'm lost in just this.
A new life.
Ten fingers. Ten tiny little toes. The sweetest face.
A breath. A cry.
A warm little bundle sleeping soundly on my chest. His heart and mine - beating.
I was mom. I become a grand-one.
I add one more title to my long list of hard-earned street creds.
He's named for his great grand-mother.
He carries her spirit within.
It's the universe's most divinely magnificent gift.

Posting here will be a bit sporadic...as I'll be busy nurturing other sweet things.
