“To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Today was especially joyful with officemate Rob Aken. We laughed. We talked a lot about drumming (Rob is a drummer, too). And being a brand spankin’ new grandfather, there was a tangible effervescence in the room. The still-unnamed little girl was born late yesterday afternoon. Modern birthing comes with hourly text updates, I was to learn. It was very exciting, actually, and Rob, in Rob fashion, was ultra calm about it. Make no mistake, no matter how calm he appears to be, Baby Girl has G-Rob wrapped around her little baby finger already. It’s so, so sweet to watch.
