New Arrival

My second daughter is due to have her second child tomorrow, April 20. I haven't heard from her in a couple of weeks, so I don't know how things are going. I would be down there with her (if she wanted me to be), but an ongoing family crisis up here (that promises to continue for about six months) keeps me from going. My mother's heart is pulled and torn in many different directions right now. However, my daughter is a good mom, and her husband is a great dad, and she's done this before, so I have no worry--at least I don't think I do. This fourth grandchild is a girl, according to the sonograms, but I still hold out a faint hope for little Nicholas. Little Gwendolyn Rose will be making her appearance very soon, I hope. (I just love that name!)

I'm not sure, but I think the baby will be named after St. Gwen of Brittany, or maybe one of these Saints. I'll be sure to post when I know for sure.


  1. Hope all is well with her! She's been through this before, though, so should do just fine. Keeping you and her in prayer!

  2. All will be well and what a beautiful name. If I'd had a girl long ago I would have chosen Gwendolyn or Rachael Gwedolyn is one of my favorites.
    Congratulations to the grandparents

    Always in prayer
    your sis

  3. Any baby yet?

    And how are you?
