I’m a Nana again! In 2020, we had our one and only grandson of 14 years. Now we have 4.
Our oldest turned 15 in early February.
Ezekiel and Zy’Aire were both born in 2020.
Greyson was born 2 days ago.
Our oldest grandlove De’Mantai and Zy’Aire are brothers from our oldest daughter, Kharisma.
Ezekiel and Greyson are brothers from our only son and last baby, Kurtis Ozra.
Our second daughter Rikki will most likely never have children. Both of our daughters are in their 30s.
I prayed for this! I can remember being so distraught over my husbands 3rd and 4th heart attacks in 2017 and 2018 that all I could think of is Dear God please give us more grands in our lifetime.
Our oldest grandson lit up our lives. He was born shortly before my husbands first heart attack. The quadruple bypass open heart surgery came shortly after the 2nd in 2012.
Ozra’s 2 sons carry on our name, naturally. My son was the only one to carry it when I gave birth to him. There is another now to carry it as well. Our nieces son, our nephew. He has the family name rather than his father’s.
I’ve been physically limited the last few weeks, more so than normally,, and other than 30 minutes about 9 days ago, I haven’t been able to resume my water PT.
My hair was in a braids bun for at least 10 days. Uncombed, messy. Didn’t care. It was the last thing on any to do list. The important things I had no choice but to do. Getting myself to the bathroom was one of them.
The day Greyson was born I soaked in epsoms and combed my hair out. That was a chore of its own. I went to the patio where my kiddie pool is and just embraced the sunshine, celebrating Greyson.
I couldn’t lower myself into the water, but I sat there in nature thanking Jesus for my blessings. I snapped a selfie so that my new grandlove will know, in the future, that he was my strength that day.
A few people told me I didn’t look old enough to be a grandma. That was kind of them.
I’ve been a Nana since I was 37. I’ll be 53 in about 3 months.
God is good.
All the time
