The growing tribe of Grandmothers.

Today was one of those simple days which started and ended with moments of joy.
I got a message from a friend who had just become a grandmother when her daughter delivered a baby boy late last night. While I played all day with my little grandson, napping with him while he snoozed in the afternoon, I couldn’t help thinking about the joys my friend will experience as a newly minted grandmom. These moments are special and cherished even more than those moments we shared with our children.
And in the evening over a tea party with friends I heard that another friend will be welcoming a daughter in law soon. And the circle of life will continue again when she too joins our growing tribe of grandmothers
