Wistful Wednesday: My Baby Brother is a Grandpa!

This is an old grade school photo of my baby brother.

Carey Unknown year

Taken..maybe when he was in first grade in 1960-61.  That is a homemade shirt he is wearing.  He was very blond and pretty cute.

Last weekend he became a Grandfather for the very first time.  His only daughter delivered a gift straight from God..a true miracle baby.  The pregnancy was tenuous at best..so it was wonderful news to hear that Cruz was born on Saturday afternoon weighing 6 pounds and 14 ounces.  Many prayer warriors breathed a sigh of relief and said a prayer of thanks for his safe delivery.

  1. I can see that you two are brother and sister…..the photos are precious and can see how everyone is giving thanks if the pregnancy was a difficult one. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!!!
    That first grade pic is also precious!!! time marches on and Baby Brothers become grandfathers! Another blessing in your family for which to give thanks!

  2. PS the grandfather quote about silver in his hair and gold in his heart reminds me of another funny one about fathers……silver in their hair and no money in their pockets..at least at one point when their kids are “of an age”!!!
