Grateful.......SO Grateful!

I shared with my followers I would have a very fun announcement in this post and I do!

Being that it's the Midway Post date for Path of Positivity, I found this to be the perfect time to tell you some incredibly positive news!!   What better way to share than through a card...........

Yes, it's true....I will become a become a grandma to a baby for the first time in January.  Now, I say "to a baby" because I couldn't have been more grateful than when I became "Nanna" to the most beautiful little almost 4-year old red headed girl in the world!  I adore and love my little Lu; she is such a blessing to all of us.  

Now, two and a half years later, I am grateful again for another little girl in January.  I am especially grateful because my daughter was told she wouldn't be able to conceive a child without expensive intervention.  She and her husband had decided to put that off for a while.  

In the meantime, she became very ill and couldn't swallow anything.  A scope was scheduled since she had been in the hospital with severe asthma and mystery symptoms.  It seemed to take forever for the nurse to come in and prep her for the scope.  Finally, she came in with a piece of paper and a shocked look on her face.  She handed the paper to Katelyn and a positive pregnancy result was recorded there.  The nurse knew Katelyn's situation, so she had them run the test twice!  

What incredible news!  It's been a bit scary with her asthma, but she's been to see some incredible specialists and so far that little girl is doing great!  

So, have I mentioned feeling incredibly grateful?  I am!
