I flew to Utah on May 14 for the marriage ceremony of my niece, and to await the starting up of my second granddaughter to Chelsea and Josh. Chelsea went into labor early this morning, and this afternoon gave starting up to Lily, 7 lbs 10 oz, 19" long, and obviously beautiful. I had brought Rose to the clinic in the morning, then took her domicile for her nap while Chelsea had a speedy and painless (2 push) delivery. After Rose awoke, I said, "Do you need to go see Lily?" and she shouted "Yes!"
Introducing Rose to her little sister was one of the such a lot tender and beautiful things I have obvious. Rose gently kissed her sister's cheek and was very interested by ensuring Lily's hat was on. Rose kept shopping over at her mother to be distinctive the youngster wasn't still within. Eventually, I rocked Lily while Chelsea and Josh spent time with Rose, playing and talking with her. Rose has no inspiration that her solar manner has just added a second sun.

When I held Lily, I was amazed and humbled at how this tiny person was created. I take delivery of as true with that Lily, like all humans, have a spirit that was with God until now starting up. As Wordsworth wrote in Intimations of Immortality:

Our starting up is nevertheless a sleep and a forgetting: The Soul that rises with us, our lifestyles's Star, Hath had somewhere else its ecosystem, And cometh from afar: Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory will we come From God, who is our domicile: Heaven lies about us in our infancy! To feel that it was not so long ago that Lily was with God, and is now adjusting to this new mortality. Today I was as on the point of heaven as any mortal might also come.
I am so grateful that my lifestyles has been prolonged to see this day. I know that that is really not through my actions that I survive against the chances: the scientific trial that is working on my cancer does not have an analogous result on all metastatic bladder cancers (see this post for an example). I simply give thank you for day-by-day, and realize joy and rejoicing in my posterity.
