Yesterday another fabulous moment happened in my very privileged life - my first grandson arrived.
Kiaora Luca James Fletcher.
So it seems the Fletch lineage lives on - and this one is a redhead in the making - so look out future world!
It is certainly a special experience being a Grandparent - not too much active responsibility but the knowing you can have some impact on the future by passing on some traits and wisdom is a treasure.
Well done Claire who endured a tough 12 hr labour - as I discussed with Jamie ( the proud Dad) it is times like these we sure do appreciate being a male - the woman's amazing role in childbirth is certainly to be admired.
I am to meet my new Grandson this afternoon. I hope he will be excited as I am ...hmm? Never the less I am sure we will have a great friendship in the years to come - we have lots to learn from each other. That's the exciting aspect - you learn to see through new windows via your grandchildren - they keep you in touch with what is really important about life - making the most of the magical experience at that moment in time. My two beautiful Grandaughters - Georgie( 3 1/2) and Tilly ( 2) certainly help to keep my feet on the ground and to see the clarity of how simple and exciting life can be. If I am smart enough maybe I can transfer this recipe into my interactions with the many adults in my life - now there's a wow factor!
