For the ones forging new things by heart and will and strength:
At the time of birthing we do not sit back but we engage more than we have ever engaged before.
We KNOW there is a new life about to arrive. And we give that new life a hand.
It’s a uniquely personal journey. Though there may be help all around. It is still and uniquely the momma’s job to do the work.
No one else will do it for her.
And so, she rises to the task. Even when she doesn’t think she can. As we all know though – she can do it.
Everything will be okay. But it iiil take work to get there. Much effort. A lot of focus. Some tears.
A profound privilege for the one chosen to bear new life. Don’t shirk back. Give it all you’ve got. You are doing great.
Touching! So true!
