I have been patiently waiting, tick tock, tick tock. My oldest son, Osama will soon be 29. My second oldest son, Yusuf, is soon 28! Yusuf got married 5 years ago, Osama got married 4 years ago. The clock has been ticking and I have been patient (not that patient). Osama and Jacki got a dog, Kenny.
Then Yusuf and Alicia got a dog, Clementine.
I love my little Grand dogs they are so sweet and so much fun!!
The clock quit ticking and finally I gave up! I resigned myself to being a Grama, to dogs!
Then last year my daughter- in- law, Jacki, told me she was pregnant, within weeks, sadly, it was over. Then only a couple months later, another pregnancy and again, over. I had given up on grand kids anyway, but felt sad and hurt for she and my son!
Now, I am so very excited and joyful to announce that Osama and Jacki are expecting twin boys! She is making her way through a high risk pregnancy in which the babies share a placenta, so prayers are welcome! She has passed a crucial point and so I feel I can say that yes, we are guarded but excited! I will be in their home this New Year’s weekend doing what I can, which is cooking up t.v. dinners to freeze. As always, I do not possess wealth to buy fancy gifts, I cannot give anything other than what is in my heart. I can help carry babies, change diapers and give hugs, cook and give my love which is what is infinite and abiding! And so I bring in this New Year with something that is truly amazing and exciting!
