Yes, Lily Rose has arrived! Tim and Jamie (actually Jamie should be first- she was much more participatory in the birth) welcomed the little sweetie on 4/21 at 5 p.m. Today, the Little Woman and I went to see her.
"Would you like to hold her?" Mother asked.
Would I? You bet.
We comment on every little twitch, coo, and tic. Mom and Dad dither about her eating too much, or too little. But I- Grandpa- hold the little bundle of hope and joy and peer into her unfocused eyes. I thank God for this marvelous, miraculous gift. And for a few moments, in this world of pain and chaos, this broken and fallen world-
Everything- everything is all right.
