Well my daughter had her baby yesterday, but the day before they had the baby, they had text message calling me “Mema”. Looks like I am going to be called “Mema” when the granddaughter is old enough to say anything…. 😀

but, to just accept the why nots and proceed forward. 🙂

As much as we prepare for everything, we often find ourselves never truly prepared.

Take for example, today…

1. I decide to make it a day for my daughter by taking her to breakfast.

2. Then I gave her a choice of what to do next. She chose to go for a pedicure. The one she wanted to go to wasn’t open, so we randomly go to another nail salon. Miraculous there was a woman that had worked in OB/GYN who happened to settle some of my daughter’s qualms about having her baby.

3. Afterwards, I went to work and she went off to meet up with her Dad who had just returned from Iraq for a spell.

4. After he left, her water breaks and she races to the hospital where she meets up with her boyfriend and myself.

Long story short….a beautiful life arrives today instead for waiting until the due date. In the midst of things, a bag they had prepared to bring to the hospital is left at home. I didn’t have time to do all the things that I had hoped I would be able to do.

However, all the preparations in the world would have never prepared us truly for the amazing life being brought into this world today. You just accept it, love the new life, and move forward with a commitment towards making this world as safe as possible for that new life.

I am counting this as being completed as such. Wouldn’t you???

for my Lazy Boy recliner love seat and chair, as well as coffee table and end tables. Just so need the space. Been in the apartment for 1-1/2 years and it is extra stuff that is taking up way too much space for now. Kept hanging on to them because I wanted to have access to them when I move into my house; but, that isn’t happening right away. Just signed another year lease at my apartment.

How successful it will be will soon be seen. I’ll let you know.

Ingredients
Your favorite pizza dough or 1-2 frozen Rhodes white loaves, follow rising instructions and then separate each loaf into 2-3 pieces (depending on how big you want your pizzas to be)

Toppings:
Hard cheese: Asiago, Romano, Parmesan, Reggiano
Mild cheeses: Mozarella or Monterey Jack or Feta
Grilled portabello mushrooms
Fresh basil leaves
Sliced Kalamatta olives
Sliced white onions
Sliced green, red, yellow and orange peppers
Diced Sun-dried tomatoes
Use any meat from bacon to chicken

Sauce:
Any bottled pizza / pasta sauce or olive oil

Instructions
Don’t go strictly by our list — have fun and provide ingredients in separate bowls for people to create their own pizza. Roll dough to desired size and thickness. Brush with olive oil and grill over medium heat until golden brown. Remove from grill and top grilled side with your favorite ingredients. Return pizza to grill, uncooked dough-side-down, close lid and in about 7-10 minutes, you’ll be in gourmet pizza heaven! Serves 4-8

Limited as we are to our steadily aging bodies, we find it fascinating that angels can take any form that suits the message. A “classic” angel, with wings and all lighted up, perhaps with pale skin and eyes of blue flame, seems to be less often glimpsed than do angels in the guise of ordinary folks of all sorts–male or female, young or old, tall or short, any race, any dialect, any description.
