I’m a Grandpa! I’m a Grandpa! I’m a Grandpa! Third time.
Think I’m ecstatic? Yep, I still am.
And that is because my daughter, Jessica, and my wonderful son-in-law, Ethan, have given Judith and I, a Grandaughter.
Solveig Runa Vander Reyden
Born on July 18, 2019 at 11:01am. Weighing in at 6lb 6oz (2.9kg) and already 46cm from head to all 10 toes. Mum & Dad are elated and Arkyn & Torvald expectant.
Solveig is an ancient Norse name and means “House of strength” and Runa means “Keeper of Knowledge”. What a marvellous prophetic declaration. We look forward to the future as that declaration unfolds.
Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.
A crown. I can hardly begin to describe the overflow of joy, delight, exhilaration, wonderment and the gratefulness to the Lord who has chosen to bless Ethan and Jessica with a daughter.
To see one’s children’s children is indeed held deep within the heart and is manifested with a knowing, proud smile only known to that of a Grand Parent. Ha! I’m a Grandpa… once again!
