“If I am thinking correctly” said Winnie the Pooh, “a new baby is probably, undoubtedly, the grandest gift that could ever be.”
Pooh – I have to say, you and I totally think alike!
And on Thursday, August 26th, the day after his big brother turned 7 years old – a new baby boy was born – and it was definitely the grandest gift we could have received.
There’s something about a new baby that is so breath-taking, so lovely, so refreshing, so hopeful – and though he’s miles away from us – the best thing about today’s technology is that it crosses those miles and connects hearts and families and a brand-new grandson to us.
And so now there are three boys filling that house with lively life – and laughter – and noise. Yes, noise – the noise of growing up – of growing together – as a family – and filling this grandparent’s heart with immeasurable joy and love. and hope!
Welcome to our world, sweet Joseph Isaac Swift!
