Welcome to the world, Shayla Naomi Mae…

A blessing from the lyrics of Natalie Merchant:

I believe
that Fate smiled and Destiny
Laughed as she came to my cradle
Know this child will be able
Laughed as she came to my mother
Know this child will not suffer
Laughed as my body she lifted
Know this child will be gifted
with love with patience and with faith
She’ll make a way
She’ll make a way

Y’all can call me grandpa smijer…

    HUGE congrats.

  • Well ain’t this something? I am proud for you. I am still terrified by the prospect of being a grandpa. This makes it a little easier for me.

    Buck, Being a grandparent is just as the name implies. Having grandchildren gives you the kind of joy you had when you were raising your own children but you do not have all the pressures. It is a wonderful experience!Shayla is a fifth generation child for my side of the family! My mother will be 89 next month and Shayla is the newest great great grandchild for her.
