The Dharma and Grandparenting
That's my first grandchild wrapped in all those stripes. Her name is Caroline Jo Coleman. She and her mother are here this weekend for a baby shower. Having this first grandchild is kind of like a koan for me. I really can't "know" anything about this until I experience it with my whole body/mind. I just "know" how much I love her mother, so I can't imagine what it is going to be like to love her. It surely can't be any "more" but I got to think that this is going to really be something different. What a great mystery it seems to be to me! What a great opportunity to forget the self!!
I love you Caroline but I think it is even more than that!
