IT’S A GIRL!

Tiff, Greg & ‘our’ new baby girl

I have a new granddaughter in utero. A sweet wee baby girl developing and growing so as to be ready to come into this wondrous world full of dichotomies – joy / sadness; ups / downs; highs / lows; you know, clouds – with a silver lining; every day is a new day.

Sometimes it helps to remember the old sayings that contain proven truisms. Over the years, I have been fascinated with quotations that have meaning for me. I am recording them so they may help others, including my nine grandchildren and the tenth who will make an appearance in a few months. We can all benefit from others who have found words to help navigate life’s journey.

 

“You and I live on a minor planet attached to a minor star, at the far end of a minor galaxy. We live here briefly, and when we’re gone, we’re forgotten. The only mortality that makes sense is to do something useful  with the brief time we’re allotted.”

JAMES A. MITCHENER: “Space” 

“Living is practice. You have to practice living all the time.”

ADRIENNE CLARKSON:  former Canadian Governor General, T-V host

“We don’t see things as they are. We see them as we are.”

ANAIS NIN

“Show up in your life as yourself and not as an imitation of someone else.”

MARIA SCHRIVER

To our newest grandchild,

You have a large family waiting to welcome you.

We are here to share some of your journey in this world and offer love and support.

Have a wonderful life.

Love, Nana xoxoxo
