“Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason , You’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.” – Unknown

This picture reminds me of someone ones telling me, “Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason , You’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.”

Made me wonder what my happiness are based on and I realised I need to work harder not to base my happiness on the people around me, my family, my kids, my work, my hubby, my surroundings, my home, what I have achieved or not achieved for the day, Oh and so many more … in order to be truly happy I need to be thankful and grateful. I need to see each thing in my life as they are, a blessing, a special gift God has chosen for me!

Like this gift with all the joy and happiness of the world in her eyes ….

Why was I so desperate to have a natural birth?
Yes, it would have been a most empowering experience for me and yes my next one will be a VBAC, but was it really that important in the bigger scheme of things? At the end of it all we got what we set out to achieve – a human being that we could guide and mould and set free into the world for her to make her own impact. Maybe that trauma she and I both endured in getting her Earthside happened exactly how it was supposed to. That’s birth and even more so parenting – you set off on a course with big plans and that’s great, but there has to be flexibility and acceptance in changing course depending on whatever life (or your kid) throws at you.

After a minute or so we heard your first loud cry. It was glorious and we could finally breathe. Sr Lotter brought you to us and our hearts melted, my boy. You were beautiful. We checked for 10 fingers and 10 toes and we couldn’t stop looking at you. The happiest moment of our lives. You were born at 11:33 weighing 3.49kg and measuring 53cm.
