Having to go on leave unexpectedly as of July 13, two months before my due date of September 13 and giving birth at 35 weeks, I realize how much my quality of life has suffered by working in the city since my twenties. So not worth my health. To think, I'd planned on working through August 16. Not sure how I would have managed my 12-hour days and 1.5-hour commute one-way during my last trimester. No doubt women do it. So eye-opening how a moment of crisis or change brings such clarity to what matters most in life. A. & I never expected to conceive a child after some years of trying on and off along with various stressful life events. Nothing has come easy, and God doesn't give us what we can't handle.
A. & I have been blessed by N., our little miracle. Be the Light.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.
