Gratitude: Welcome, Baby!

Praise God! After a loooooong labor, another beautiful baby joined us in the outside world tonight.

It was my turn as labor coach, but as I waited for the final delivery, I reflected on all the others who helped with this accomplishment in just the past two days:
  • the 16 year old who supervised four siblings ALL DAY LONG (from 4 a.m.), plus some cousins later
  • the children who cooperated with each other
  • the sister-in-law who volunteered to supervise a household cleanup AND made dinner, partly for my sake, and partly to give David a break
  • the friends who took up the slack, driving children to dance class, Mass, and violin rehearsal, all in response to last minute requests.
This is the body of Christ, working together for good. Thank you!
