This is the word I keep thinking of over and over the past month. I am sure many of you will agree with many of my thoughts…especially those who are experienced grandparents.

Amazing is……

Watching the love of a man and wife when one of them is your child.

Watching your son in law love your daughter by making her laugh, encouraging when she is tired of   being pregnant or in the midst of painful contractions and that he is allowing you to observe all of this.

The birth experience…..observing as your daughter carry, labors, endures pain and delivers a beautiful baby.

Watching the crown of the baby come, and then the whole 8 lb. baby come.

Are the health care workers (midwives) who work together through good communication and education of the couple to make it an extraordinary experience. 

My daughter, who is also my friend wanted me to share this experience with her from walking the Mall of America, giving birth to cleaning the house.

 My husband who allowed me to be gone for 5 weeks to experience this.
 The joy you see demonstrated by your children to their children.

 GOD who created man and women, made our bodies to carry babies and birth them.

Psalms 111:2

How AMAZING are the deeds

of the Lord!

All who delight in Him

should ponder them

Psalms 96:3

Publish his glorious deeds among the nations.

Tell everyone about the AMAZING

things he does.
