One of the joys and mysteries of aging
is seeing your children and grand-children
have their own families. A miracle of miracles.
Gives a lot for one to think about.
My friends, Joan and Ralph Preble, are great-
grandparents for the second time. Their daughter,
Stephanie and her husband Veine, grandparents
for the first time.
I can remember the amazement of looking at my
first grandchild in wonder, knowing some day,
my genes would again be carried by another
My guess is that most grandparents and great grandparents
have similar thoughts about the future generations,
knowing they may not see the child grow into adulthood,
and wonder what the world will offer them.
For me it has never grown old, the wonder of new life.
