The Gift Of Life
The great friend of mine who was in labor a week ago finally gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby girl last night. They are all happy and oh-so-lovely. I was able to make there just in time to witness new life come into being.
I have had the privilege of watching in awe as four (almost five!) babies have joined us on this earth, along with my own two. I figure that in this short life we have, why not see life just as frequently as we will inevitably see death? There is a purely fascinating magic that takes place when a brand new baby draws their first breath. What an incredible gift it is to be a part of such a wonderful moment!
Thank you Deidre, Kelly, Bethany, Gali and Michelle for allowing me to behold the true meaning of life. You will continue to inspire me always.
