my daughter informed me today that she and her partner both listened to the baby’s heartbeat when they visited the mid wife. Listening to her tell me this brought back memories of listening to her’s when she was in her mum’s womb all those years ago, what an amazing moment, the beauty of child birth.
Sometimes I actually envy my daughter, going through that wonderful time, waiting for your child to be born, the excitement, the trepidation and worry then the joy when the child finally arrives. Then I remember the five o’clock feeds, the smelly nappies and the teething and I realise that I’m happy with how my life turned out. I have two wonderful kids and I’m about to be a grandfather, again. The circle of life turns, I’ve done my bit and I’m happy to turn over those chores I mentioned to those who are next in line. I know they’ll do a great job because they’ll love their kids at least as much as I love mine.
And that is my thought for the day,
see you soon,
