I don’t know about you, but I spent the first years of marriage and motherhood climbing a steep learning curve. Why? Because despite having a college education, I had no clue how to slice a watermelon. I didn’t know what the best cleaning agent was to really de-grime my sink. And I certainly had no idea how to put that button back on my husband’s work shirt.
Only love can be divided endlessly, and still not diminish.

There’s no way to untangle the emotions of this past year from the events of this weekend, no way to separate this amazing, miracle birth from the web of loss stretching over the last months. And yet …
This is the day.
As much as anyone can ever be “ready,” we are. This is the day we are to meet our newest baby.
