Since getting the news last winter that Caleb and Hannah were expecting a baby Rick and I have been told many things about being grandparents. All of it is true.
There are things, however that no one mentioned.
No one told me my daughter-in-law was even stronger than I thought. And that seeing her in so much pain would undo me the way it did.
No one told me that my son could look so tired and so strong at the same time, and that seeing that resolve would break my heart.
No one told me that once going through this experience I would come down with this strange virus which causes a chronic lump in my throat. No matter what I do it won’t go away, although Rick feels sure that if I would just lay down and sleep it might ease up some.
We were told that our granddaughter would forever change us, but no one told us in what way. We now know. We are ruined.
And no one told me that seeing this would make me fall in love all over again.
