Would you believe we were blessed to hear his first cries from the adjacent room? This to me was such a blessing. I had wanted to be there
also when our little Elias was born almost two years ago, but at the time, we had my Mother's funeral arrangements to tend to. We had to wait two days before we finally met our Elias. So to be there, or almost right there, when Owen was born, to me was just unbelievable! The reason for this is because we had to take care of Elias, and since we arrived in San Antonio during the labor segment and while Elias was napping, we had to wait for Elias to wake up. He finally did, just moments before Owen was born. It was certainly an interesting experience for all of us, including Elias.
The hard part was saying goodbye when we had to leave. It's always hard when your children and their families live in other cities. Each time we see them again, we know the babies will have grown and changed more. I feel that Grandparents who get to see their Granbabies often are so blessed. But then, that's just me. If it was up to me, my two Sons would live here with us, or at least in the same city. But I know, they have to grow up and be independent. And they have to pursue their own dreams. That's life, or so they say. So for now, I'm grateful I get to see this new generation of babies. Thank you Lord! You are so good!
