Boy, things sure have changed since I had my 3 children! I was so impressed with how today’s moms-to-be have the privilege of by-passing most of the hard, excruciating labor pains that millions of mothers before them had to endure as epidurals were not an option! These women, even in the hardest moments of labor when their contractions are less than a minute apart, are smiling as their baby is about to be born! Wow!
My daughter had to finally give in and allow her medical staff to wheel her into the OR so little Miss Trey-Olivia could be born via C-Section, and Grandma Mary Beth was allowed to be part of the team and yes, I did get to see this beautiful “Gift” from God be born and yes, I did get to cut her cord…and yes, I offered this baby to the Lord and asked for God’s Blessing upon her. What a thing to witness…what a true miracle I witnessed as when you are the one doing the delivering, you don’t get the chance or opportunity to see birth without the pain memory/experience…you get to see only God’s Divine Hand in it all!
My precious little granddaughter Trey-Olivia was perfect just as I knew she would be…thank you Jesus! She weighed 8 lbs. 2 oz. and was 19″ long. Her head is covered with the most beautiful black thick hair, just as her mother’s before her was. We are just over-the-moon in joy, love and “family”. Here are a few pictures (just a few out of 700 that were taken) so everyone can see what has been taking me out of circulation these past weeks! I warn you, you may fall-in-love with this little face…I’m just saying.
Thank you to all my dear friends, my family here and on You Tube for all the well-wishes as they have truly meant the world to me. Thank you all my sisters and brothers-in-Christ for allowing me to be part of your lives and you mine. The Lord Jesus surely brought us together.
