31 Days: Grandma's Wisdom~ New Life

October 9th 1942

A woman cries out, no mother to hold her hand.  Sweat, tears, and the mess of birth brings forth the cry of an infant.  "It's a boy!" they say.  A healthy baby boy.  And as she looks into the face of her son, the emotion wells inside.  What a time to be born.  War was not just among them, it was raging.  She sees such hope in this tiny little life, and yet such fear surrounds not just a nation, but now the world.  Grandpa's beside her now, and together they marvel at the mystery of this new beginning wondering just what his precious life will hold.
