We've been there and back again. Ha! Almost as soon as our last show ended, we got on a plane. Finally, we got to meet this little fellow. Our grandson. He's amazing! And big! If we'd waited much longer, he's have been holding me. Living so far away is terrible. We knew that before. After meeting him even more, now we know what we're missing.
I took his Christmas stocking along. He won't notice it yet, but new family members are gifted their stockings for their first Christmas. They'll match the stockings that his parents hang on the mantle this year. I can't wait to see a picture of them all lined up. It means so many things. In a year when so many friends and family have been taken from us, the gift of this child, is just, well.. everything!!
Meanwhile, I have to get back to the current busines at hand. It is THAT time of year again and bows have to be tied, wreaths hung, trees decorated.
