Little over 8 months ago, I found out that my daughter, Ashley, was pregnant. My baby was having a baby?
I am still getting used to this idea. When people ask me about how excited I must be, I think I surprise them when I say I'm terrified. But, it's true. I remember feeling the same way when I was expecting my first born. Will I know enough? Will I love her enough.
But the moment I laid eyes on her- it was love at first sight. All my worries about knowing enough and loving enough were put aside. That's not to say that I didn't worry. I still worry, every day.
It's what mothers do.
So, as my baby prepares for motherhood, I prepare for grand-motherhood.
Hopefully a little wiser, calmer and with a heart that already understands the concept of unconditional love first hand.
