Happy Birthday

December 28, 2008

I am a sentimental fool, totally in love with a granddaughter I haven’t even met in person.  She is so beautiful, and in her I feel such hope for the future.  We all sense the potential that she is about to explore, and I feel the optimism of her entire family for a world that she is a part of.

That she will be loved –  is loved – is without question.  She will be encouraged but not coddled.  She’ll be protected but not cocooned.  She’ll be her own person, and if I know her parents she’ll be assertive and will know her own mind.

She’ll be smart, I’m sure of that.  She’ll be funny – I mean how could she not have a sense of humor?  She’ll be empathetic and social, and will be one of the lucky kids in this world who knows she is loved and can develop herself without bracing for disappointment.

I am shocked at how raw my emotions are when I think about how much I love little Consuelo already, on this special day, the day of her birth.

Congratulations, Adam and Martha.  Your new adventure starts now.

    1. What a wonderful beginning to the new year. Congratulations to all of you, parents and grandparents. She’s a beauty and that was a beautiful announcement, make sure it is saved for her she will love having it as an adult.

    1. Congratulations, she’s is lovely! It really is a grand way to bring in the new year, can’t wait to read about her adventures in growing up. 🙂

    1. Thank you all. We couldn’t be happier…well I guess until we head to Mexico City for bit of bonding time. Hopefully it will be in the next couple of weeks.

    1. Nancy & Paul – With all that is going on in your lives – you took the time and spent the money to provide some VERY NICE things for Ursulo Galvan – It is obvious from what Nancy has written about her new grandchild that she has a heart of gold – then we received the package for people she doesn’t even know here in Xico – now I think maybe a heart of platinum.

      Our sincere thanks and appreciation for people like you two.

      Saludos,

      John & Anita Calypso

    1. Heather – thanks, we think she’s beautiful, too!

      John & Anita – I’m so glad the box got there, I was late sending it. I hope that you were able to match the age level of the books to a needy child. Thank you back at you for all your efforts on behalf of the kids!

      Happy new year, guys!

    1. Hi Nancy – Congrats on beautiful, precious Consuelo. I’ve been “under the weather” and not able to read blogs for over a week. What a delightful surprise to see this precious miracle. Being a Grammy is the BEST!
