We come in all sizes, shapes and colors. We are from every culture and we are everywhere in the world!  We have been around since Eve was middle aged!  We are called Nana, Oma, Granny, Grandma, Grandmother,  Granna (that is a cross between Grandma and Nana)Grammy and my personal favorite Baba.  I am a Baba…..(Slovakian roots) My nine grandchildren and many of their friends call me Baba…I love it!  Becoming a Baba has been the most wonderful thing that ever has happened to me!  Oh, how blessed I am!

People told us and we never doubted it was true

But you really can’t comprehend it until it happens to you.

Words cannot explain it….it just can’t be understood…

The wonder of the ‘state’ we’re in…..Grandparenthood!!!!

Those tiny newborn bundles that we cradled in our arms

Have become precious little people full of endearing charms!

They burst into this world and right from the start

Wrapped a hand around our fingers and their lives around our hearts.

Their eyes are bright with anticipation as they come through our door.

Oh the giggles of delight as Grandpa romps with them on the floor.

A story and a cuddle snuggled close on Baba’s lap…

Or sound asleep on Grandpa’s chest for a cozy little nap.

Only God in His great plan could ever have known

How much we need babies when our own kids are grown!

Thank you, Lord for grandbabies, and bless them we pray,

May they grow in faith and love for you each and every day!
