This may not be the post you were expecting from me today.. I will have another post later today or tomorrow on my Panda Recovery series, but this post needs to be sent..
The Smith family has a new member!
Anya Mae came into the world at 3:32 A.M. Sunday Morning...
Since we all are becoming friends here on ActiveRain, this will be a great opportunity to introduce you to my family and I...
You know, business is great, life is great, but at the end of the day, my family is the most valuable and precious thing that God has brought into my life!
I consider myself to be incredibly blessed to have a wonderful wife, 4 children (ages 9 to 33), 4 grandchildren (ages 1 day to 19 years), 1 great grandchild (age 1).. For a 52 year old man, I have so so much to be thankful for!
Here are a few photos from the hospital, and a few family pics at the bottom...

I am SO thankful for my family. We are healthy and blessed!
Many people ask me why I am always so cheerful and upbeat.. This is why! There is nothing more that I could ever ask or expect out of life.. I have SO SO much to be thankful for.
Have a great day my friends!
