Stay, Babies, Stay

Thirty weeks have passed. Two tiny beings are growing and developing eager to meet the world. Maybe a little too eager.

There isn't much we can do about the time that babies decide to enter the world. We have been watching these children grow through the ultra sounds and then their movements. They are developing internal organs now as their time of birth grows closer. Please, dear God, keep them in there for awhile longer.

Isn't that the way with life? We live the best we can growing and changing seeming to prepare ourselves through trial and error on our way to become better people. To be the best we can be. Sometimes we move ahead to early and are not prepared for the outcome. We trip over our own feet all too often. But still we grow into something new and hopefully smarter. Maybe the process should be called the birthing of the adult.

Little boy and little girl Drake need to stay in the womb and wait. Their little lungs need to develop and their bodies grow a bit more. Yet they lie with  heads down, resting against one another waiting for the birth canal to open and loving arms to welcome them. Two babies sure that they are ready and a family praying they will wait.

The birth of children. The birth of parents. The birth of us all.
