Good things come in small packages

For me it would rain red roses,
wonders and miracles to meet
and luck would open each door that closes,
like a hand from above, delivered with love

Wonders and miracles to meet, this is what I got with this small package and have always felt blessed to have this child.  Everyday is full of wonder and miracles and the lessons I have been taught by this small package is numerous and I am grateful for each one.  Don't blink.  These pictures are 20 years old, unbelievable.  Now this child has brought her own small package into the world.  I am truly blessed to experience 4 generations being in the same room.  I have to wonder was this what it was like for my mother when I had this small package and my grandmother was still with us?  I was in a different spot in the family line up then and didn't realize all the miracles around me.  I have been bumped up in rank now and try my hardest not to blink, I don't want to miss anything. 
The lyrics above are from a song sung by Rene Caron, it is truly beautiful.  This is the challenge song over at Scapping the Music and I was inspired to join in on the challenge.  The video is below if you would like to give a listen.
