Just two weeks ago, a new little leaf appeared on our family tree, making me a first-time great-aunt (that is oh, so hard to believe!).
This is the first addition to our family in over 20 years—far from an everyday occurrence in this neck of the woods—so we’ve been celebrating and enjoying this newest addition to our family. He’s an adorable little fella and, at over 9 pounds, has a very healthy and vigorous appearance. It’s so fun to watch his little eyes move and look around. You wonder what he is thinking at this stage–a little sponge absorbing every sight, sound, and smell around him. May God bless him and keep him and make him strong.
To think we were all once so tiny—precious little bundles to our adoring parents. You look back on all the leaves on all the branches of your family tree, going back hundreds of years—there’s a lot of love there!
Do you know what you are?
You are a marvel. You are unique.
In all the years that have passed,
there has never been another child like you.
~Pablo Casals (1876-1973)
