Happy Valentines Day to EVERYONE!!!! (sorry I am late)
I hope that all of you had a great Valentines Day. Things were a bit on the crazy side this week. Well, actually, they were just plain nuts. It was one of those weeks when you know that you know that you know that He is in control.
Most of you know by know that I am trying to balance doing my Doula work with working full time. Usually when I have a baby that is really close to it's due date a bit of panic usually sets in and then this overwhelming sense of peace just covers it. It just amazes me when this happens. Anyway, I had a little one that was due last Saturday. She chose not to make her appearance until her Mom started having headaches. She went to the hospital Wednesday morning and they kept her. After a VERY long night, early on Thursday morning, she made her grand entrance into the world. It was a VERY long and beautiful delivery and Mom, Dad and little one are doing GREAT. Key is, she arrived, we had time to get things started and Mom settled before it was time for me to leave and go home, shower, change and head to work. I thought I was going to fall over but He saw me through.
Thursday nights are Childbirth Classes at the YWCA here in Greensboro. I have several teens that I am working with. We have a lot of fun. Anyway, I got home. Got everything settled and I was R-E-A-D-Y for bed. My phone went off about 9:30pm, one of my Mom's thought she was in labor. It was her mom calling me. She had been told to head to the hospital. I told her to call me and let me know what was decided. All of that to say, I was at the hospital about 11:30 and another PRECIOUS little girl had a birth day about 4am on Friday morning. I came home to sleep about an hour and then back to work on Friday. Coffee, caffeine and anything with sugar was my best friend on Friday. I was DEAD on my feet. It worked out that I got to get off early!!!! Thank you LORD!!!!
It has been just awesome. I wouldn't trade it for the world. All of that to say, I didn't miss one hour of work!!!!! Is that just wild or what!!!!! I have had 9 deliveries and only one was oops! and that was my fault. Do I think I am doing what I am suppose to be doing!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!! I have been at the hospital enough that the nurses are getting to know me quite well.
I love these Mom's and they are just an awesome group of Women!!!!!!!
Well, gotta run for now. Keep watching for more updates and pictures coming soon!!!!!!!!!
