a granddaughter is imminent
'Imminent' - 'threatening to occur immediately; near at hand; impending'. Though our granddaughter has been around for awhile, she is about to introduce herself to the world. The due date is April 20, and all systems appear to be go on the launch pad. The bedroom is painted, the diapers are ready, Jenny is on leave and Esther's bags are packed. It is so fitting that as the winter weather is finally breaking into spring, a new life will break into the Bulthuis family. We are so thankful for Jenny's good health and prenatal mothering. She is already a great mom! I don't think Bjorn will know what hit him. Esther is already enjoying her 'granny' status, and I am starting to get use to the idea. Anyway, we are all very excited and we would appreciate a prayer or two for the safe and healthy arrival.
