November 2 – In a world gone nuts

In a world gone nuts
A Grand Daughter turns seven
Perspective, Hope, Love

On a cool November morning seven years ago, I drove to the hospital to meet Azaria Janae Hoffman for the first time.

Life has not been the same in some unexpected ways.

I cannot say that these feelings are unique to me, but maybe unique to Grand Parents.

But Grand Children really do put things in perspective.

Faith, Hope and Love.

The Book says the greatest of these is love.

That doesn’t mean to discount or diminish faith.

And hope?

When I held that baby girl in my arms and looked in her eyes for the first time, and when I sing, in the most awful way today, Happy Birthday to that same baby girl, I can have nothing but hope for the future.
