It would be nice if I could be considered a "great" grandma, but, Oh, well...

However, yesterday I had the blessing of going
to the ultrasound with my Bhutanese granddaughter and her husband... they consider me their grandmother, since we became "family" when they arrived from Nepal in October. Well, they are having their first baby, a girl, in mid-August. I'm supposed to be at the birth, too. Not a frequent occurrence in my life, because I'm not a "medically-oriented" person, but I will be there, for certain sure. [His parents are here; her mom and dad are in Nashville.]

Just thought I'd share this.... what joy to my heart! And, if you notice how small they are, I expect the baby will be very small.

[I also have a grandchild arriving in mid-September from the other family member, Nar... am supposed to attend the ultrasound for her around April 20th. My, my, my...]

She is such a beautiful young woman ... and what an honor for you. Your "family" has grown by leaps and bounds this past year.

Just wanted you to know I stopped by... and what a gift it is to attend a birth. I don't imagine too many great grandmas get the opportunity. ;-)
