Waiting and Waiting

We are waiting for our new granddaughter to arrive. The nursery is ready, and all the grandparents are VERY ready. Of course I'm sure her mom is more than ready as well. But we know well that babies arrive when are good and ready, and nothing anyone does or says is going to make her come any earlier.

I'm sitting here contemplating what she will be like. Will she be a "go-getter" like her mom? Will she be intellectual? Girlie-girlie? Curious, but cautious? Will she be gentle, like her dad? Calm and diplomatic? Or will she be an interesting mix of both?

What will this little miracle look like? Will she be dark like her mother, or light like her father? Will she have any Asian characteristics at all? Will she love to travel, or will she be a homebody? Will she be domestic, or will she be a klutz in the kitchen?

No one but the Almighty knows the answers to any of these questions. All we can do is wait and find out. The only thing we know for sure is that she will have many hands eager to hold her and she will be unequivocally loved.
