The Circle of Life
My first grandchild, Madeleine, arrived yesterday. Such a mix of emotions, but I know she will be blessed with an angel to watch over her. I am extremely hesitant to post this poem, but it captures my feelings so profoundly. The words were first written about a week ago when I awoke at 2 am and typed away on my phone. The only words that changed were the gender (it was a surprise) and the lips that told me she was being guarded by her angel.
