First Time Grandma finds Grandma Faith

Grandma faith is experiencing new grandchild bliss amidst initial misgivings.  Not only do new parents (first time parents) have some misgivings, but they also have a great faith in grandma wisdom.  It seems like a tall order initially, but the rhythm of love, mutual support, and encouragement becomes clearer as the bonding grows.

I've been graced with an incredible experience as a first time Grandma. I have shared it here. Some of the delightful benefits from my experience are:
  • bonding deeply with 3 others
  • providing support
  • trusting my Grandma instincts, and renewing faith in the human nature of nurture!
Luckily I was able to meet other Grandma's from around the world, and compare notes.  A lovely thread of mutual knowing and respect in each other's care taking really  takes place in the baby boomer Grandma galaxy. 

Although current Grandma-hood care taking methods may differ from our mother's Grandma-hood methods, they still involve support in some form. It could be; doing laundry, cooking, babysitting, companionship, advice, etc.  Having Grandma faith that all is as it should be sure helps.
