Back a few months, after days of waiting and watching my mobile and my bag packed ready by the door… I got the text “on our way to the hospital” … I was bursting with excitement because I knew I was going to witness something amazing. There really is nothing like witnessing a new life entering this world. I wouldn’t have thought it got more awesome than that! … But it did… it does! You see nearly 9 years ago I was on the other side of the world when I got the text that this same women was bring her first born into the world. I clearly remember being awake half the night and having a good cry and sook because I felt so far away. I couldn’t be there to congratulate her and hold her little one … and I had no idea when I would see them next!
Fast forward quite a few years and I couldn’t quite believe that I would be so close when she was having her fourth baby… and that she had asked me to be there when he arrived!!… I wasn’t going to miss this for the world.
To my dear soul sister… thank you for allowing me to share this.
People… turn your volume up and get some tissues.
