July 11th., 2011 was one of the greatest days in the past two years of my life. It became a day filled with happiness and a tinge of sadness at the same time. I was thosands of miles away and getting ready to cross the border to go back to a very tiring task when I turned on the computer and entered my facebook to discover a message from a friend of my daughter. She informed me that my second granddaughter was on the way. My baby was in the hospital having her second baby. I just knew it! I had always said Maija Aurora would arrive before I was back home with my daighter and so it was happening. I was very excited as I crossed the border that afternoon and as I smiled deep in thought I felt a little sad because I was not there to witness the joyful moment first hand.
I am here with her now, however, enjoying every moment with MY FAMILY.
WELCOME MAIJA AURORA. WELCOME TO THIS WORLD. YOU ARE BLESSED AND TRULY A PRINCESS.
I PLEDGE TO LOVE YOU AND CARE FOR YOU AS LONG AS I CAN.
TO MY DAUGHTER CAROLYN I EXTEND ALL MY LOVE. I CONTINUE TO BE PROUD OF YOU.
TO MY SON IN LAW, MIYA, I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST AS YOU WITNESS THE BIRTH, THE GROWTH AND THE LOVE ONLY A FATHER CAN FEEL. YOU ARE BLESSED AND I AM PROUD OF YOU. YOU CONTINUE TO SHOW ME THAT YOU TRULY ARE COMMITTED TO YOUR FAMILY.
ALL MY LOVE,
Grandma Brenda Aurora
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
