Today I felt my world shift.
I was sitting on my daughter's sofa folding baby clothes fresh from the dryer, and Laurinda was sitting nearby with baby Makiya. Suddenly my mind travelled back 30 years when my own mother sat on my sofa folding baby clothes and I held a baby Laurinda.
I realized that this little piece of life has moved 360 degrees and I am now the visiting Grandma. I'm the one helping out with the baby, cooking meals and just generally trying to help my daughter as she moves into her new role as Mom.
In a few weeks I will turn 50, I am now a Grandma, and life moves ahead. What a miracle this circle of life really is.
