A star danced,
And under that
was I born.

Before Jonathan left for France, I gave him the exciting news that my daughter Sara was expecting her first child in late July. I told him that I might not be able to post much as a guest blogger at the end of July and in early August while he was away on his trip with his family. Jonathan told me he wanted to see some pictures of the momentous event on the blog.
Well, Julia Anna, my first grandchild, was born this morning at 1:22 am. She weighed in at 7lbs. 11 oz. I was so happy that my daughter Sara wanted me there with her when she had her first child. It was a truly amazing experience for me to see Julia being born…to be there to help and to give words of encouragement…to share this very special moment with my only child. I’m floating on cloud nine at the moment. But I’m also exhausted. I didn’t arrive home until three this morning.
Here are some of the pictures I’d like to share with you:
Here I am with my daughter Sara on Mother’s Day:
Next May, we’ll be celebrating her motherhood too!
