A bittersweet blessing..

I am not sure how many of you recall a couple months ago when I blogged about my nephew in Iraq. At the time, I told you that he is my youngest brother's son, and that my brother had died tragically 3 yrs ago. Okay..enough history! Today, I had a visit from the girl that my brother had been engaged to at the time of his death.( That isn't strange, she is a visiting nurse and helps me with my dad). The neat part is that her daughter from her first marriage had a baby girl on my birthday!!! As some of you know, that was a week ago. They brought her to see me because we share a b-day and because they want me to be "grandma Barb"..even tho' we aren't related. They wanted the baby to somehow have a connection to my brother, isn't that touching? I'd bet Jimmy"d love that!! Just thought I'd share!

That's very cool Barb.  I've always said you can never have too many friends and that sometimes "family" isn't necessarily a blood relative.  Enjoy that little one!

Re: A bittersweet blessing..

That is so wonderful.  Love has ways of growing and the more you share the more you receive. 

Re: A bittersweet blessing..

Oh Barb, what a wonderful Blessing! I have tears in my eyes just thinking about you and the baby and your brother and all, but then, I am the most senimental of souls and love a good love story. Thank you for sharing with us!Cry (happy tears!)
