As the kids and Pop watch yet another episode of "Finding Bigfoot",
I secretly realize that I have seen one of these creatures up close and personal.
As a matter of a fact, it happened not so long ago.
Although at the time the circumstances were pretty intense,
everyone involved was calm.
As I recollect, it was over the Christmas holidays,
on a Thursday afternoon at 2:45pm exactly.
Everyone was plumb tuckered out from a pretty long night,
but I remember it as if it were yesterday.
Poised beside my daughter, I looked up to see...
my newest grandson enter the world at 10 lb 9 oz. and 23 inches long!
He was then and is now, if I do say so myself,
Congratulations to the newlyweds,
as I continue to call them, despite their five year marriage.
Life will never again be planned and perfect.
No, instead it will be much, much better.
It will be messy, fun and surprising!
For with the birth of a child comes the sweet joy of seeing the world again as if it is new...
Welcome, little big man;
your presence brings a new sweetness to our grown up world!
May God bless you always.
