Babies are God’s way to let us know that no matter all the ‘bad’ stuff out there, life is good. My daughter gave birth last week and I became a first time grandmother. I am in love and this new chapter holds promise, joy and hope for us all. The promise of many tomorrows, the joy of today and the hope of a good life without tragedy and drama. Babies are beautiful and life is good. While the stress and heartache of life and the world may seem overwhelming at times, the innocence of a new baby gives us hope. Hope for new beginnings and a brand new little person’s opportunity to help all of us be better people and the world a better place.
