Congratulations, Granny!

There is something I haven't yet mentioned, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). 

At least, I believe I haven't yet written about it.  If I have, please forgive me for not recalling doing so.

Why I couldn't sleep last night, was beyond me.  But, about an hour after I finally drifted off, my phone rang.  And, I was woken up.

It was my daughter B. 

Before I tell you what she had to say, there is something I should tell you.  My daughter B has her son (my eldest grandson) T, and his partner S, living with her. 

T & S, were expecting a baby.  A baby, girl.

When B phoned me somewhere around 5:00 a.m. (I hadn't looked at my clock, so I cannot tell you the exact time she called), it was to tell me that S's water broke.  B was taking them to the hospital.

Even though I had only had about an hour's zzzz's, I found I could not go back to sleep.

Eventually, I got myself up and running.  Well, okay... not really running.  Walking.  And, doing things I needed to do.

Getting things done, I knew I had to leave home, about 11:00 a.m., to do some tasks that had been preplanned.

About 12:05 p.m., I found out that B's granddaughter (my great-granddaughter) was born, about 11:20 a.m.  Her name was planned to be... S.  S, weighed 5 lbs. 2 oz.  :)

Unfortunately, my daughter B was upset.  Even though she was happy.

Originally, she and her son T, had been allowed to be in the birthing room with S.  B was there for about three (3) hours, before S's mom showed up. 

To be loving and kind, B left the room, so S's mom could be there with T and her daughter.

Eventually, after baby S was born, mom S's mother left the hospital.  It was then, when my daughter B went to go see her newly born granddaughter and her parents.

Unfortunately, it didn't happen.

The nursing shift had changed.  No one realized that B had been the person who had originally spent time in the birthing room, with T and S, while she was in labour.

B was told that under the hospital's new rules, no one was allowed in the room, except the two (2) people who were originally, there.  B let them know what happened.

The nursing staff refused to allow B to enter the room.  Not even to take a peak at baby, S... and her family.  Or, even to take a photo.  :(

After I finished with a meeting I had attended, I drove over to B's home.  She was so upset.  She was crying.

B and I sat together, talking for a short time.  Then, I prayed with her.

When I arrived home, I had some work to do.  Eventually, I went on Facebook (FB), and saw that B had posted photos of our new family member, S.  Plus, several other pics, including a pic of baby S, and B!


God answered our prayer.  For this, I will always be thankful!

Faith in our Lord, did this, to be sure.

Just as we read, in Matthew 21:21, "Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done."

I praised Him!  Over and over, again! 

Yes, it will be a day or two (2) before I will be able to see my new great-granddaughter. 

Still, I am truly thankful that God answered our prayer.  And, made a way, where there seemed to be no way, for my heartbroken daughter B, to be able to see her newly born granddaughter, S.

Thank You, Lord!  Thank You!

Until next time...
