The timing of the emergence of our children into the world is a mystery even the most educated and the most wise are not privy to. This knowing is tucked into the destiny-map of our children, some who teach us the limits of our patience before they are even born.
Trusting this is the beginning of our opportunity to learn trust for our children all through their life. It's an opportunity to learn who they are before we ever even gaze into their eyes. To appreciate the inner knowing of their souls.
It teaches us to sit back and observe THEIR rhythms and ways.
Living in the not-knowing of the end of pregnancy is a blessing that must not be overlooked, as unnecessary interference in this time can disrupt the choreography of a family's life going forward.
