Not long now …


Sam May 2013

It won’t be long now until I am an Oma again and as you can see from the picture above, my daughter-in-law is blooming. She looks great and is all prepared.

The baby she is expecting will be much loved and well cared for. A lucky baby for sure in this world as it is today. As I look forward to this happy event with the rest of the family, I can’t help thinking about all the children who are not so lucky so I’m giving them my thoughts too when I go to bed each night and pray for a happy outcome.

This is such a wonderful time of the year to be having a baby.  Two of my own sons were born in May and I remember how getting up in the night to feed them was not half so difficult in May as if it had been November, or worse – February!

Waiting for a new grandchild.


As I wait patiently for my new grandchild, who is due on 22nd May, I am thinking back to a former time when I too was waiting for a child.  I have been very lucky, for not one…

not two … but three little boys have been given to me.

I keep their baby books in this very special box and look at them from time to time.

This is Robert’s first picture, taken in May 1974. Click to enlarge and see better.

and Edward came along three year’s later in 1977, the year of our Queen’s Silver Jubilee.

Three years after that, in 1980, David was born.  We were too busy to take a picture of him so the entry had to wait a few months!

Now David is going to be a daddy and I am wondering what the baby will look like.  Will it be a boy or a girl, big or small, quiet or noisy, we just have to wait and see..

What I do know is that he/she will bring lots of joy into their lives and mine too.

So, here I am waiting, waiting.  Do you like my slippers?
