My family was getting smaller, only my daughter now who decided
not to have children..yet . My son passed away. But today I have
two daughters and four granddaughters and three great grandsons.
My second granddaughter just had a little girl last night. I have my
first great granddaughter. I feel comatose..unreal…I can’t believe
the way I feel about this little girl and how much I want to see her
and hold her, how much I love her though I haven’t seen her
or touched her. So much of my life is in flux. Sometimes emotionally
I don’t even know where I am. So this is what it’s like to be a great
grandma. I can’t get this grin off my face or the desire to see her
and hold her off my heart. I’m in a daze. Is this a dream? How can
this be real. This is really weird.
