I have spent the last few days looking at my new granddaughter; sitting and just watching her. Talk about holding onto the moment, being in the moment; I have been melting into the softness of this little and huge miracle of life. When I’m with her, everything else gets washed away and disappears. True bliss surfaces and I feel at peace with this most serene little being.
I don’t recall feeling this way when I had my babies. Perhaps this is part of the grandparent perspective or just an older one; having lived through and experienced many trials and tribulations of life one gains the wisdom of appreciation and the keen awareness of the awesomeness of this most common daily miraculous happening – having a baby.
And then I think- the first exit point away from this moment of perfection- how unfortunate that life has to get so complicated, filled with the antithesis of this newborn essence.
Struggle, angst, hardship, harshness, challenges are left outside of my purview, for now. I am drawn in to this oil of infancy, dabbing it on all over and taking in its lasting scent.
