Of course the news is that Johanna and Nate's little baby was born this morning.
"Norah Darlene, 7 lbs 4 oz, 22 in long, born 9.20 am Our time. We're all doing well. Feel free to spread the news.:) pics to follow"And just like that, to me at least, the whole world changed.
The day got really emotional, and I noticed something new in the air, the feeling that this day could in no way get any better, no matter what. And it was true. All that joy, it caught me by surprise.
And so now I am a grandpa by role, a Papa by title. A new job with new responsibilities.
She is beautiful. May this life she's been given be full of grace and peace and blessings, and very few tough times and broken hearts.
