Blue Zone Miracle – Gwen
Early Saturday morning a small miracle happened. A baby girl was born. Every newborn baby is a miracle, full of potential to change the world. This one was personal, my first granddaughter. A wonderful Fathers’ Day present for her father and grandfather.
She arrived before 5 AM. We drove through the night, and an impressive line of thunderstorms, 4+ hours to take over baby-sitting duties with her brother, almost 3 year old RJ of previous posts. He was also the occasion of a mid-night ride. Both have been worth the trip.
I still remember the birth of their mother, our firstborn, years ago, after an all-night labor. She changed our lives forever, most days for the better.
Families are Blue Zones. Treasure yours. They grow up so fast. And now are amazing parents themselves.
