What did she get?

becky jones.jpgI forgot to give the father mentioned in the last post a pat on the back. When the new baby was born, he presented his wife with a gift. Was it because she had carried the baby around for 9 months? Was it because she had morning sickness or was hot, tired, ill, hungry, etc..for months on end? That special “baby” gift could be for dozens of reasons. I believe that is was mostly for self-preservation for the father. If he stepped-up it that hospital empty handed on baby-day, he may have received a special gift himself. A kick where the sun don’t shine. New moms like to know that all there hard work was appreciated and jewelry gives them a lasting, tangible gift that she will associate with that special time of life.

The most precious gift of all.

babyDM2702_468x343.jpgTime has a way of making us forget what is really important in life. Most of us spend our days trying to make ends meet at work and home. We schedule meetings, clean the house, do yard work, you know “busy work” and rarely stop to smell the roses. But every once in a while something happens that makes us step back and breathe. This morning my friend called me around 7:30, he and his wife were at the hospital. I knew what that meant, they were getting ready to have a baby. I got all excited, it’s been almost three years since my baby was a baby and it is easy to forget that “new baby” feeling. I was not always this way. I was once scared to death of holding a baby and since I was the baby in my house there were no younger brothers or sisters for me to “practice” with. I now know that they won’t break and what a special gift from God they really are. Sure, those sleepless nights, spit-ups and toxic diapers make you feel like you will sometimes loose what little mind you have left, but those times are bitter sweet. They grow so fast and soon they’re in school, dating, driving, going to college, getting married and having babies of there own. Being a parent is “busy work” but rewarding.baby massage hat.jpg
