Gramma was here to visit Dear Bebe for a few days and to help Mommy Jillian and Dear Daddy catch up on some much needed sleep. First, we'd like to say a big THANK YOU!!!!! I am feeling so much better today after getting some extra ZZZzzzzz's.
Something Gramma said struck me and I wanted to blog about it. We tend to get caught up in the frenzy of taking care of a newborn, which we should, but there's also something much deeper too, to think about. And maybe the late nights alone with Dear Bebe help us think when there's no other noise or distractions.
She said it was great to see Dear Bebe and to be a Grandmother because it helped her realize the whole circle of life. She had me, I had Dear Bebe, and now hopefully someday Dear Bebe will too, experience motherhood. Seems simple enough but when you think about how delicate and fragile life is...it is amazing how we keep on keeping on. Maybe it's because I just had a friend who is a dealer at our antique mall go through a terrible tragedy. She just lost her daughter who was in her twenties. She died suddenly while they were out clothes shopping.
So today when you see or hear from your special Bebe, take a moment to give he or she a big hug and think about your circle... it is a precious gift!
