As I write this post, I am joyfully awaiting the birth of my baby granddaughter, very soon!  While I am not sure of the day or the hour, it makes the time spent thinking about her that much more precious.  I have learned through time that waiting requires lots of patience…..and faith, and that there will be many tests required of us as we wait on life’s events.  I like to think of this time as preparation to be our best selves, before we walk through the gate, and into that cherished moment.
