I just arrived home after spending the day at my daughter's home and could not wait to share the wonderful news that I am going to be blessed with another grandbaby, except this time instead of my son becoming a daddy to a fourth child ... my daughter is going to be a Momma for the first time! Now, that is a Mother's Day blessing (the baby is six weeks, so maybe a New Year's baby or early Christmas blessing ).
Oh, God bless you all! Than you for sharing in my joy here. MY GOODNESS looks like the baby is multiplying here with the card photo!!! EVERYONE, there is only ONE baby, and I do not know what I have done with the multiplying photo LOL. We have a long wait and many months of praying ahead. Whatever God's plan is, is His plan. Thank you all for understanding my joy in being a grandmother once again. You are all the best! HubPages is such a loving community.
Thank you sweet friend. Yes, now my other grands will have a cousin, and this little one will automatically have three cousins. I realized too that my son is going to be an uncle now LOL. I know he is a wonderful daddy already, and now he will be called uncle too ... so fun! The due date is far off, January 3rd, being the baby is only six weeks right now, and my daughter wanted to surprise us early, and what a wonderful surprise it was on Mother's Day. So, as we know, could come two weeks early or two weeks later than that date. Well, we know they will arrive when they are ready for sure! It would be sweet to have a Christmas baby, but it does not matter when, as you say, she or he will be a blessing to all. Whatever God's plans are ... we know this. I know you will pray for this child. He or she can never have too many Aunts! : ) Hugs
Oh, Faith, CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so happy for you, this is the greatest gift ever! LOVE the picture! Happy Mother's Day to you, and you SO deserve this happiness. Hope you are getting rest...you will need it after the baby comes. God bless you so very much Faith! First born for your daughter! I still remember the way I felt when I was pregnant for my first born...there is no way to describe the feeling! Love Sparklea
Yes, it is an exciting time for sure and what a surprise Mother's Day gift/blessing. Oh, we have a long time to get plenty of rest as the baby is not due until around the New Year or maybe late December. That would be wonderful Christmas blessing for sure. I know.. she is my firstborn, and I will never forget how I felt too, and you are so right about not being able to describe such. I do not know how two pictures showed up here lol.
Dear Shyron, Yes, a most exciting one indeed! Thank you for sharing in my joy. I am too excited to even go to sleep thinking about that precious little blessing from above and wondering about his or her little sweet personality to be. All of my grandchildren are so precious and each one so beautifully unique that I am always so overwhelmed at how much each one has blessed my life with joy beyond anything that I could have ever imagined. Rejoice! Hugs and much love to you always dear one
A big congratulations to you Faith. Your little girl is going to be a mother for the first time. How wonderful! I am so very happy for you. This truly is the very best Mothers Day gift of all. ~ Love, Audrey
Yes, truly is the best of all and to find out my firstborn baby is carrying her firstborn baby on Mother's Day is truly a double blessing. Thank you so much for sharing in my joy. Hugs and love to you and yours. I hope you had a wonderful day as well!
Yes, a beautiful blessing like no other! Thank you so much for sharing in our joy. I know you know of such joy too. It is an exciting time and a lot of time to wait patiently and pray for his or her safe arrival close to Christmas or New Year's baby ... January 3rd. Well, we know they arrive when they are ready. Happy Mother's Day to you and your blessings in your life.
Yes, my daughter came up with a special idea for sure, as both future grandmothers to be (again) were there to open our special cards : ) I appreciate the congrats and thank you so much for you stopping by to share in our joy.
FAITH you have me cracking up and blushing i can hear the excitement in your post. Its a cool card i hope she makes it on my birthday January 4th ha ha ha "Capricorn" are the bestest people in the whole wide world. YIIIIIPPPPPPYYYYY!
If this precious child is anything like you dear one, then she or he certainly will be the "bestest" ever person around! She or he is due January 3rd, so could very well holdover one more day, then we will celebrate two beautiful souls and what a wonderful day that will be. Yes, "YIIIPPPYY" LOL Love you. I know you will pray for this little life too. (((Hugs)))
Thank you so much Christin. I truly appreciate you stopping by to share in my joy. I love the card too and my daughter really surprised me on Mother's Day, as I was thinking it was going to be a gift card to a spa or something. She sat both grandmothers to be down and presented us with the same looking envelopes. I just knew it was going to be a gift of a free visit to a spa ... LOL. Well, this little precious one is a blessing beyond measure! He or she is only six weeks ... so I have to be patient and pray daily. Bless you.
I know you understand completely, as you have been blessed beyond measure with your 7 grands and 1 great grand!!! Honestly, there is nothing in the world like being a grandmother ...hard to exactly put it into words.
Yes, my daughter surprised us big time with that card, as I mentioned here somewhere, I just knew it was going to be a gift card to a spa and was excited ... LOL. She sat the two future grandmothers down and make a big presentation and imagine the expressions on our faces!
Thank you so much dear one for sharing in my joy. (((Hugs))) and love to you and your precious grands and great grand.
That is so precious, what your grandchildren call you. So nice to meet you. You are so kind. My three other grandchildren (2 granddaughters and 1 grandson) call me Nanny : ) ... In both of our families, we already had so many taken with my mother (she went to be with the Lord right before Christmas 2012), that the grandmother, grandma, mema and all others were taken at some point. Usually whatever comes out first is what you will be called. I appreciate you sharing in my joy. Blessings to you and your precious grands.
Felicitations dearest Faith & family for such a precious and timely celebration of one of life's greatest joys. What a gift! So happy for you, especially as this could not have happened to a more genuinely warm and beautiful human being. To health and happiness for one and all! http://i2.glitter-graphics.org/pub/754/ … alkt6b.gif
What a gift indeed! You are always such a dear to show support. You are most kind. Thank you for being you (please never change) and sharing in my joy. Yes, here is to health and happiness always! I will check that out! Blessings
Yes, Nell, it was one heck of one LOL ... She caught me totally off guard, as I was so excited and SO sure that "the card" was going to be a gift card to a spa or massage LOL ... but this is way better of course! She sat both of us future grandmothers to be (for me again ...number four) down right next to each other and presented the cards to us at the same time, emphasizing we must open them at the precise same time and wowzers ... LOL I am still so filled with joy and smiling.
So, like, how come none of you other slackers started a Mother's Day thread this morning. Moms are under appreciated. Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there.Hopefully this thread will garner some posts before it...
I just had a really wonderful surprise when I discovered that one of my hubs has been chosen as Hub of the Day! This has given me a real sense of achievement here and I would like to thank everyone who has shown support...
