Now that statement sounds ominous. Our minds go to something bad that has happened. But truthfully, I have had more good things change my life than bad.
Today marks the 5th year of a life changing day for me. The day I became a Grammy to a little 8lb 1oz boy, Henry William VanDyke. Since that day, my life has never been the same.
So many memories are wrapped up in five little years. I told him that he is now a whole hand.
Five years ago, I saw my 18 year old daughter give birth...I was amazed by her strength and determination...her instinct as a new Mommy...the love she had for that boy filled the whole room. She is still a wonderful mommy.
When he was born, not a cry or a whimper. He just looked around the room with a frown on his face. As if he was saying, "You are disturbing my peace". The nurse took him and as she rubbed him his little swollen face began to scream. After she got him to start crying, we couldn't get him to stop until I took him, put him next to his Mamas face and she kissed him...instant peace. They were so connected and love filled the room.
