For me one of the deepest joys is to know my 'blood line' is to carry on. I am sure I am not alone in thinking that.
Yesterday Annie and I had the opportunity to go and visit Sebastian my 6 month old Grandson. We are only able to see him occasionally and this was one of those very special days.
I am sure it is the same for all Grandparents but there is definitely a warm tingly feeling when you reflect that there is someone who will - God willing - carry on the blood line.
An awesome feeling - Sebastian is a wonderful little chap.
Now I am getting all sentimental :-)
