A Forever Day

"Trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home"
- William Wordsworth

There are certain days of our lives that stand out in memory, vivid and shining forever. My wedding day was one such day. The days my children were born are others. Today, the day that my first grandchild was born, is certainly another.

Perhaps it is our reward for realizing the precious nature of time that God saves the greatest joys for the later years of our lives. Whatever the reason, I shall be grateful for this day forever. Welcome to life, dear grandson. You are the past, the present, and especially the future to me.
