Katherine Lynn


As I held the swaddled bundle, large luminous eyes gazed up into mine and I realized I had become a new person.  I am officially a grandmother. 

It seems only a few years since I held her daddy in my arms.  Was he this tiny and vulnerable?  I remember his large feet and as I uncover her toes I laugh because she has the distinct curled little toes that her daddy inherited from me and I inherited from my mother.

Life goes on, and so much of life passed on is worth celebrating.  This is a quiet celebration but a very meaningful one.  I smile at her, and hand her to her daddy who cannot stop smiling.  I look up Abba and smile wondering if this is how you feel each time a child is born.  Still performing miracles aren’t you?
