Thursday’s Child December 8th

a manger scene in which  one of the three kings says

~Just to be perfectly clear. These gifts are for you Birthday and Christmas

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace.
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living.
And the child born on the Sabbath day Is bonny and blithe, good and gay.[1]

On December, the 8th, my second Grandson was born, after a long and nervous wait. And, today, I saw him for the first time. What a wonderful day!

I have revised and republished some interesting and substantial entries:
