My beloved grandaughter

This has been a monumental week for me. A couple of years ago, probably when I was feeling a bit down, I prayed the prayer of a patriarch (look up Abraham, Isaac and Jacob if you need to understand the Jewish Christian heritage.)...but there are plenty of other Patriarchs & Matriarchs....I think of Henry  & Lillian Clark for example, who would never have thought of  themselves as such and yet parented 4 daughters, 2 sons, 9 granddaughters,  4 grandsons who in turn have parented  8 daughters & 7 sons...this will at lest give L something to check and tell me I have got the numbers wrong
I prayed as Abraham and Sarah had prayed...or tried to... that I too would be the father of a generation.
She's looking pretty good so far, more than one person has commented that she would appear to have her eye on me....and those long curly baby fingers...well I am pretty well wrapped around them!
