Oh the joy!

week and a half old Weston.jpgWe had our first grandson last month. Our first grandchild.

I haven’t experienced such joy since our own two daughters were born some two decades ago.

Weston Glover McCoy arrived into our world two weeks ahead of schedule on November 12, 2015. He’s the healthy son of Emily and Dan Glover.

There are many definitions that describe what it means to be a first time grandparent. This is mine:

“I am at peace. I am at peace because a beautiful new being has been brought into our lives with the promise of making our world a better place. I’m at peace because I know my grandson’s mother and father will be great parents.”

I also like using Adobe’s new Premiere Clip app to assemble and edit videos like this that capture the joyous occasion.

Life is good! May yours be too. – Barney McCoy
