Miracles

I've often wondered how anyone who's ever experienced the miracle of childbirth could doubt the existence of a "higher power". As either the active participant or the poor soul delegated to holding the hand of that participant it is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and soul stirring things to witness.

I remember in vivid detail the birth of my son. I remember less vividly the 36 hours worth of labor it took to bring him into the world, though I do tease him about it this time of year in a very gentle way. Last night as we shared his birthday meal together he looked at me and said, "Thanks Mom. Thanks for giving me life, and even more than that...thanks for actually doing it a second time and giving me my sister." This my dear friends is why I refer to him as my "soul".

It's amazing how after enduring 36 hrs of heavy duty contractions assaulting my body every 5 to 3 minutes, and then later every minute, that the most vivid memory would be the exact moment they laid this child in my arms and his eyes met mine for the first time and our souls found and recognized each other. I touched and understood love in it's purest form and my life and heart were changed forever.

Happy "Birth" day darlin...your moma loves you.

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth. Mahatma Gandhi

Those moments of epiphany are truly rare and to be treasured.

Thanks Mom. Thanks for giving me life, and even more than that...thanks for actually doing it a second time and giving me my sister.

Not that my son and daughter fight very often but I don't believe either has thanked me for the other's existence...

That is realy quite impressive ! says something quite special about their momma....

"Higher Power" No doubt!!

Even beyond child birth.... that still has me amazed at my insignificance... So many times in life we are saved from a situation that leaves us wondering where the good fortune came from...

Michael - Thank you - they are only 19 mo's apart and have been buddies from the beginning. I tried very hard to instill in them the bond of "family". Don't think they never fought...lol...oh my - but then it really is true that we only let loose with the people we feel safest with, right?

Ocean - I never wonder. I know I keep my "angel's" very busy. (giggle)

Aascrompn - They do indeed - What are you waiting for?

agreed...carrying a child in your womb is like no other
experience...and celebating the birthday of a child seems
to me to be a day to remember the miracle of their birth
as no other one could possibly remember. the birthing process
in and of itself is like one of the wonders of the world...at
least i thought it was...

you are blessed to have your beautiful children and the fact
that they get along as they do is amazing, i think! says alot
for you Pixie! {=}

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

Goddess...I sometimes feel sorry for men that they will never know the experience of carrying a child....right under our hearts. I am still awed that I was gifted with the two that i have. I AM blessed.
