LAST year, I became a grandmother.

My first grandson, Ignacio, was born the same day as Prince George.

It’s been a delight over the past 10 months to watch as he’s turned from a small wrinkly baby, totally dependent on his mother, into a real little boy, with a mischievous smile and hearty chuckle.

When I reflect on this, I am reminded of some of the words from Psalm 139: ‘For it was you who formed my inmost parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.’ God the creator made each one us, with our own individual character, gifts and abilities, and has love for us all.

I’m looking forward to the coming months when, along with my husband, I will take on caring for Ignacio one day a week, when his mum returns to work.

I pray that I will be able to convey to him some of that love that God has for each one of us.
