Nana Holds-From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Coffee Hour!

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power. If this is your first time sharing a little coffee break with us, well, you came at a great time. We are just beginning this new series. For those of you who have been joining me for awhile, here is the series that I’ve been talking about for a couple of weeks now. Grab your coffee and come on in.

Something tells me this is going to be powerful for you and for me but let me start at the beginning so it makes some sort of sense. The title may not have a clear meaning to you right away, so maybe I should explain that first – or not. Let me just say that these two words are the theme, the melody of this series that is exploding with harmony, and notes I’ve never heard sung before in the song of my life.

But it wasn’t that way in the beginning. Let me introduce you to my step-son, Bryce. See, about 15 months ago, he came back home to live after admitting that he needed help. I’ll never forget the mixed emotions I was swimming in as I watched the tears fall down his face while he explained that he’d made a mess of his life and needed help to get back on track. He wanted to get his son back who was living with his mom up north, and had been for almost a year, more than half of his little life. Bryden, newborn-3months

Before I go any further, let me introduce you to this little life. His name is Bryden. Don’t you just love that name? I do. The first three letters are from his dad and the second are from his mom. Pretty clever, huh?

Allow me to rewind just a bit further to when little Bryden was born. I watched him several times the first few months of his life, and if I were honest with myself, and you, too, I’d have to admit that I never really bonded with him. I don’t consider myself to be real baby/toddler friendly, and maybe that’s because I didn’t do such a great job in those years with my own son; I’m not sure. I just know that that feeling I had is incredibly important to this series. Please don’t misunderstand me; I love all my grandchildren, very much; I just don’t feel as though I’m your typical Nana who is anxiously awaiting the next time I get to be with my grandkids.

Ty-Ty and Dillan, our first 2 grandchildren

Well, I’d better let you go for now but join me tomorrow for our power thought Friday and Monday, we’ll pick back up with Nana Holds.

    I hear you girl. It’s not an everybody thing is it? It is stressful and rewarding, but that doesn’t mean every moment is sunshine and flowers and butterflies. The stuff that comes with the “job” can have showers before sunshine, fertilizer before flowers and fuzzy little crawlies before butterflies. Let’s see how we can go about dealing with this reality.
