Joyous News

My dear, beautiful friend Bernadette sent me an email early this morning.  This is what it said:

JEN, DAVE AND BABY ARE DOING WELL.

6 LBS  7 OZ

HE’S NICE AND PINK AND HEALTHY!

LOOKS GREAT!!

HE OPENED HIS EYES AND LET OUT A PEEP.

PICTURES TO FOLLOW.

This is life, in all its richness and combinations and jouneys and tribulations and blessings.  This new little boy, Carter, has given life to life.  Creation to creation.  Love to love.  Peeps to peeps!  And, of course, “snips and snails and puppy dog tails” to, well… everyone!   He has brought great joy from the greatest sadness, and will sing of life and creation and love and angels.  Most especially, his sister, Angel Caroline.

My heart is full of joy for Bernadette and Ed and for her entire family.  It makes me feel like dancing!  And singing!

Welcome, Baby Carter, to this wonderful, wonderful world.  You arrive with love’s perfect harmony!

  1. As I said this morning on twitter, this is such wonderful news! Even more wonderful in more than 140 characters! If all babies are a blessing (and they are), I cannot even fathom the amount of blessings this little boy is raining down on their family today.

  2. Thank you for the blessing of your wonderful friendship-I am truly speechless with this tribute to our little guy, Carter!

  3. Hi Sharon,

    We don’t know each other very well, we have sweet Chrissy (A Storm of Thoughts) in common…. but I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog. You have the power to make me laugh, to cry, to smile knowingly, and to also get upset (for example: the bleach blonde with the flipper finger).

    You write often about your family, of course, and I enjoy hearing about each and every one! They are just adorable!

    And you write so lovingly about your friends.

    And I just wanted to say that any person lucky enough to be a friend of yours…. well…. is lucky enough.
