    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 ).

        HI EVERYONE,

        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.

        Okay, I think I am figuring out how this forum is working now LOL.  This must be the first forum I have done since the new formatting.  Please forgive me. 

        Dear Sha, You're the best. I posted something down the line here in a grouping and now I have figured out how this forum works individually with the quotes ...  Wonderful indeed!  (((Hugs)))

      Ah; you know besides you, no one is more pleased than me. This is going to mean so many great things for you!! What is the due date? A Christmas baby? Doesn't matter it will be a blessing I know!

        Faith Reaperposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        Dear Jackie,

        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

    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!

      Faith Reaperposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Thank you, 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.

      Happy Mother's Day, sweet friend.

      God bless and much love,

      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.

      Hello "Granna" Lisa Keating,

      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.

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.
