Greetings Friends! Once again, I’m taking a detour from teen and book issues to brag about my new grandson. He’s home from Africa! My daughter was in the Democratic Republic of Congo for forty days finalizing all the official papers. (It was a mighty loooooong forty days.) As you know, I was lucky enough to be with her for fourteen of those days.
On Monday, my daughter and grandson came home! We had a party in the Indianapolis airport! Woo Hoo! I wondered what shape they’d be in after flying for two days, but I needn’t have worried. They both arrived with huge smiles. Little Eli laughed and clapped and blew kisses and in general, stole the show! He grabbed at the balloon bouquet we’d brought and enchanted us all.
What an amazing journey this has been. And how grateful we are to have been part of it. We are privileged beyond words to have this little guy as part of our family. He’s been with us for such a short period of time, but already we can’t begin to imagine life without him.
We love you, Elijah Paul Mpeti. Thank you for being part of our lives.
How about you? Is there someone special who has joined you recently or not-so-recently? I’d love to hear about it.
And as always, thanks for stopping by.
P.S. Only two more weeks until The Lance Temptation releases! If you want a good, clean, teen read—this book is for you!
