6.18.21- We finally get to meet Mckenna
You’ve met Mckenna priviously but now she’s almost 100 days old. Because of the noise, loud music and gusty breezes outside we decided for a change our venue and moved indoors. As before, I’ve mentioned, Carla and I are not related to the happy parents. Abby came into our lives at age 8 and now, fourteen-years later she’s still finding ways to brighten our lives. Having a “Surrogate Granddaughter” is definitely not an official title but I would like to think of myself as being her “Surrogate Grandfather.” For now I’m just so happy to have such a pretty gift be part of our lives as well.
Mom and Dad, seen above are just so lucky. For sure, by many standards, we might look at them and see all the material things that are not part of their lives, but as I’ve mentioned many times about happyness;
Happyness is to have everything (you need), not the need to have everything.
Abby and Michael have a long way to go in their life long trip but I do believe they firmly understand the saying above.
I should have used a flash, Little Mckenna is hard to see, but I wanted to minimize the flashes for Mckenna’s sake. Even my small strobe light might not be good for Mckenna. I cannot think of a nicer gift for Fathers’ Day for Michael.
What a great day. We all enjoyed Mckenna, her folks, a good meal and great conversation. Surrogate Grandparents could not ask for more.
Carla and I are looking forward for the privilege of being part of this young family’s future, even if only a small part. In their arms they have all they need, what they might need God will provide, but if he’s busy, we’ll try to do our part.
