Grandson, Grandparent Godmother..

Grandson, Grandparent Godmother..

Ok Christmas is over and the new year has started . For me this is an exciting time firstly I have a wonderful Grandson Harry John born on 26th December. 

Harry's Bunting

Secondly I am having a birthday  and I am a grandparent ( does it get any more exciting?)

And finally I have a wonderful Godmother who this morning I received a gift from ( Oops it was a birthday present) I opened it as it looked like an ordinary package , I have been very good and put other cards on mantle until the day.
Ok in reverse order I received from Sylvia the most beautiful string ( 3 actually ) of pearls they fit perfectly . I have always wanted a set of pearls and these I will treasure and wear with pride .

Being a grandparent is such an honour its not like being a Mummie ( I Know spelt differently but this was how my Nana spelt it so I want to carry on the tradition) where you HAVE to be involved it is a role where you are invited into the lives of a family that is just starting out on the roller coaster of life called family.

I am looking forward to being there for the good times and the not so good ones .
I could have covered God, Grace and generally anything but these three sum life up for me at the moment the above ones go without saying .

That's it from me short and sweet but to the point .

Congratulations on being a new Grandmother, Tracy - that has to be the best "G" post of the day!:-)

THanks also for stopping by and reading my book review! The author has been writing on this topic for well over a decade (I also own her earlier food allergy book) so I'm sure you will find the info beneficial!

Also - thanks so much for sharing my blog via my button with your readers! I wanted to let you know that I am now on Wordpress, so if you could update the URL when you have a moment - that would be fabulous!

Have a wonderful week and a most blessed New Year! :-)

Thank you for your comment on my blog. You are right. Small steps towards meeting goals is so much better than wild resolutions.

This is a stage I'm looking forward to one day, but hopefully not anytime really soon. Okay, I'm old enough to be a Grandma. Don't tell my kids this, though. It's inevitable for a little bundle of my own to happen, since DD#1 is married and DD#2 will be married soon. DS isn't a concern at this point. Anyway...I hope you are loving being a Grandma, and Happy Birthday to you!!! Thanks for sharing your 'G'post & stopping by my blog!
