I was just thinking last night about the meaning of Zane’s and Grace’s names. Zane is from Sean, which is the anglicized Irish of John, which means, "God is gracious;" and Grace, of course, means "grace". So together their names mean "God is a gracious [giver of] unmerited favor and kindness." How true that is. Isn’t that lovely?
My daughter, her husband, and new baby are still in the hospital and will be going home today, Lord willing. I am picking Zane up from the other grandma’s house in a little bit and will have him today. We are going to the hospital to see everyone, of course, then parks and playing and a visit to the cousins (so Grandma can catch her breath, LOL) then I will take Zane and supper back to his house once his Mom and Dad get settled. So this will be my post for today, unless by a miracle at the end of the day I am full of energy for writing. But I promised pictures, and I need to process them off the camera and onto the computer so I can post them, and that is more likely what will happen this evening, LOL.
I just have to mention how proud I am of my daughter. She delivered Grace naturally without drugs, and maintained a calm and peaceful spirit throughout. I did not hear her snap at anyone even once. Then after the baby was born, when she was exhausted and hungry, she still received well- wishers with so much genuine grace. My daughter’s gentle and quiet spirit is such an inspiration to me. God bless you and your sweet little ones, honey. Dad and I are soo proud of you and your precious family.
