Drumroll Please . . . .

TA DA!!!!

The answer to my riddle is:



I'M GOING TO BE A GRANDMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Michelle and Brad are expecting a little one mid-June. Oh my, to say we are excited falls short of how we feel. How is it possible to love someone so intensely that you haven't even met yet? How can you feel so burdened to pray for the life of a person that hasn't yet arrived? God is so gracious and His plan is so perfect. We are truly rejoicing as a family as we look forward to the arrival of a new member of our family.

When Chuck and I were having children, he wanted a son so badly. And I so badly wanted to give him one. But God's plan for us was different and now we cannot imagine it being any different than having our four wonderful daughters. And there could not be a more perfect daddy to daughters than my husband. The other day I asked him if he is hoping for a granddaughter or a grandson - totally expecting the answer to be a grandson. He thought for a moment and then said, "Oh, I don't know, a little granddaughter I guess." It brought tears to my eyes. The truth is, it doesn't matter to us - we will love what we are given. I guess we have learned a lot over the years!

I have already started knitting and planning on what I am going to make for this sweet little baby. Michelle and I are going to make the nursery layette. She is using a Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star theme. Oh the fun we are going to have!

OH!! I'm so happy for you! You cannot believe how much that little one will capture your heart! You know, we experienced the same thing...all girls until little man, Austin. My husband said the same thing as yours, too. But the day Austin was born, he went out and bought him his first football for them to play someday. There's just nothing like being a grandparent!
