Once upon a time….the classic story beginning. We have heard it repeatedly all through our lives. However, it is what comes next which is the real story.
The stories of our lives, intertwined with the fabric of our lives, and of course the threads as well. The big wide open vistas/opportunities, the blankets of security, drawn down to the small details…Since Tuesday late night I have new Great Nephew. (Well, to be honest I am not sure that is what he really is in those family genealogy terms to me, but he is my niece and her husbands new baby boy.) To think about the awesomeness that his whole story is just beginning, is really daunting, as well as wonderfully miraculous. He is a lucky little boy who hopefully will have no struggles as a “wee one.” He is already extremely well-loved and cared for, and will get to live all the wonderful experiences that “love and care” enables. Add education, a little luck, and effort, and he can truly lead his life however he desires one day-in his own spectacular way. It’s as if his own story in barely touching the left side of the “O” of Once upon a time….so many stories to go. How exciting! Congratulations to all – the parents, the baby, the grandparents, the great-grandparents, the aunts, and uncles, and all the extended family that this bundel of newness has already spread happiness and joy to. Here’s to joy and new beginnings!
Hey there little person – Welcome to our world, our family, and our love!

Only you know what needs ‘editing’ ….
Now get out that pencil and eraser, and
