An Ode to the Things I Love

I am pretty lucky to have an amazing husband that loves and supports me, children that I absolutely adore and a pretty amazing job. I'm definitely feeling the love today! I also feel blessed to have family and friends that always make me feel special. I'm one lucky lady! I hope you are feeling loved today too!
Yesterday I had the privilege of attending a birth at the Santa Barbara Birth Center. I think the most rewarding part of being a birth attendant is the joy of seeing a new family cuddled in bed together, sharing a moment that will always, always be remembered in their hearts. It is such a special moment that will never happen again, not in the same way, and I am there. Witnessing. Filled with joy and hope. Blessed. Honored. They smile up at me with gratitude for my love, energy, and knowledge that have helped them to make their experience a better one. As they say "Thank you," I want to say, "No, thank you. I am a better person for having been able to share my love with you." What a job to have, that I get to experience new life and new love so often. I am always reminded of my own first day as a family with Bill and with each of the kids as they joined us. So blessed.

I am so lucky.
