When I found out that our first grandchild was on the way, my emotions went between being overly excited and being upset–after all, no one asked me if I was ready to be a grandmother! Here I was about to have a new role in life, but it was a role I had no say-so in. However, all of my grumpiness faded as we awaited the birth of our first grandchild, and totally disappeared the first time I held her in my arms. Since then, 5 more grandchildren have been added to the family and I cannot explain the deep love I have for these little people. Having grandchildren is a privilege not everyone has in life, and I am grateful to God for giving me this joy.
