Three years ago this evening, an opening began.

My daughter decided to start her journey earthside…

In a sense, I’d been preparing my whole life for it, yet when the moment came to step into this birthing of another, I felt remarkably unprepared, yet incredibly excited and willing to step into an unknown.

This morning as my now almost 3 year old rested on me, we watched the sunrise and I was flooded with memories of the process that unfolded to bring her into this world.

I am full of gratitude for the strong women who gathered to support me in labor who showed me what strength, courage and trusting in Spirit can be in birthing a babe.

As I remember the beginning of labor today, I sense this continued remembrance and reverence that I will carry with me until we celebrate our little one’s third birthday on Sunday. (That’s right folks, 36 hours of labor!)
