Any day now I will become a grandmother for the first time. My youngest daughter is expecting a baby boy literally any day now. Since I received the news last spring I have gone through an enormous range of emotions. Shannon will be a single mother. I know she will be a wonderful mother. Motherhood for me was more wonderful than I could ever have imagined and also more difficult than I could ever have imagined. I am worried for her. I am excited for her. I have confidence in her. And of course I am excited for me. My new grandson’s name will be Aiden and I can’t wait to meet him.
