From The Mists Of Time

                                              In the vast blue there shone a star
                                              And you came to us from afar
                                              From the mists of time unto the Earth
                                              And brought you to your place of birth.

                  This morning my daughter delivered a beautiful little big boy. 10lbs 13 oz.

We are all quite in shock at his size, especially my daughter who eventually pushed him out. I was privileged to be there with her and her husband as we welcomed the babe into the world. It was very hard labour for her and she was amazing .

                      ' ..... and so together they travelled over the rainbow bridge and down the spiral staircase until they came to a big gate. The child felt a little anxious about leaving his wonderful home, but with courage in his heart and his Angel beside him, he went through the gate and a little baby boy was born upon the earth..' - Beyond The Rainbow Bridge.
