Time to Pick a New Name
Yes it is that time! It is time for me to pick a new name. This name will be spoken out of the most precious mouths on earth....my grandchildren....it is an important name. It is one I get to chose. I haven't been able to chose a name before. You are given your name from your parents, you might have a nick-name or two through the years given to you by others and your spouse might give you a name...but you never get to chose your own!
An email reminded me I needed to chose my name...the one that would be passed down through all the grandchildren to come...and I pray there will be a lot of them. I will hear this name until I pass to see the Lord.
Now this wasn't a chore. It pulled at my heart...I have been dreaming about my first grandchild for years. Somehow making it official, to be printed below my picture in a album, made me really think.
I thought I had it....Mimi...that sounded cute. Many of my friends are Mimi. Then there was Nana...more friends have that and even blogs declare the title of Nanas around the world. Gigi is also cute. Granny was my grandmother's names and my mom is Nanny. Somehow they all didn't fit. I kept trying them all on for size...no!
My daughter-in-law then suggested the one I had hidden in my heart. Yes, you can call me old-fashion. Yes, I am a Baby boomer and I am not hip. No, I don't mind being thought of as old...I have earned it!
What is it going to be.................
GRANDMOMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is me!!!
As the child arrives and is welcomed into his/her new home then I will declare more about my first grandchild. As for right now, showers are being scheduled, adjustments to life are being made and I am trying out my new name. It looks like before I wear my "mother-of-the-bride" title, I will be enjoying my new name. I might just have to go back and add it to the header for the year....
GRANDMOMMY ......................do you think it fits me?
