You know; I thought I'd never have grandchildren. Danny went to his grave thinking we would never have grandchildren.
But GOD knows more than any doctors a or specialists…
Almost two years after he passed away in 2006, Amanda and Charity showed me a prescription that had; "Amanda is pregnant" written on it.
I was in such deep shock, that although I saw the words, they didn't make a bit of sense to me.
Me, who reads anything and everything. Me who once read the encyclopedia from A-Z, couldn't read those three simple words! It may have well been written in Chinese.
This is no lie. I had to get Charity to read it to me...twice. And when those words finally sank into my brain, I started sobbing and trust me, those were happy tears!
Wyatt Kelvin Daniel Kitchens was born on June 18, 2008.
God indeed had blessed us.
Later on, HE blessed us twice more…with little William and Kenzie!!
GOD IS SO GOOD TO US.
Tomorrow, our first little blessing from God will begin his first day in school.
I know William will surely miss Wyatt being home with him. Wyatt's the big brother whom Will imitates and parrots his every word.
I remember my babies first day at school. I remember how small they still looked as they went into the building, and how it felt to leave them there without me. I know Amanda’s and Kelvin’s heart will walk right through that school door with him tomorrow.
These five years since Wyatt was born have flown by, as I knew they would. Once you become Mawmaw, you should have already learned how very fast the years go and how quiet a home is without your little ones running around. You know, that is probably why we grandparents tend to spoil and hold them close.
Although I pray everyday for all three of my grandchildren, tonight I have a special prayer that the Good Lord will watch over Wyatt and that all his school days will be happy ones.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
