Happy New Year
2017! Are we really saying goodbye? It was a momentous year. Donald Trump became President. Ugh. Not sorry to say that either. Once upon a time protesters crashed the Democratic Convention in 1968 shouting "The whole world is watching." They were right. The world is watching again. It's not a pretty sight.
On the other hand, 2017 was momentous for me in two very significant ways. I turned 70 and my grandson, Nolan, was born. I wished for a grandchild for a long time. I had given up until I opened a coffee mug that said "Grandma" Christmas Day 2016.
Nolan was born April 19, 2017 weighing only 2.1lbs. His development had been slowed. Despite the setbacks he is a healthy happy baby boy. He is a little behind in his physical development, but seems right there mentally. I hope so. He is certainly a gregarious little guy who loves new things and people. I couldn't ask for two better parents for him either. They have been amazing.
I had ignored this blog for a long time, but it's back. I hope someone's reading. If nothing else, I'll be reading it.
