Baby shower . . .

Brief: My daughter-in-law is expecting a son -- Kiran -- the end of January. Today, her sister and the wife of my son's cousin (the pretty lady with the baby below) threw her a great shower.
"A new baby is like the beginning of all things -- wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities." ~Eda J. Le Shan"When you look back on a lifetime and think of what has been given to the world by your presence, your fugitive presence, inevitably you think of your art, whatever it may be, as the gift you have made to the world in acknowledgment of the gift you have been given, which is the life itself . . . That work is not an expression of the desire for praise or recognition, or prizes, but the deepest manifestation of your gratitude for the gift of life." ~Stanley KunitzIn case I haven't mentioned this, I can hardly wait for Kiran to get here.

  4. Lucky you, Leslie!

    My son just got married last year. I suppose I must be patient, but I sure would love to have a grandchild. ......I can't believe I just said that! Like Jack Benny, I'm still 39.

    Great quotes. I'll be watching in anticipation.
