Life is short.... Occasionally bend the rules.... Forgive quickly.... Kiss slowly.... Love truly.... Laugh uncontrollably.... And, never regret anything that made you smile....

A Day of Waiting.

The expression  'a cat on a hot tin roof' ' springs to mind at the moment... I have had a phone call......Not THE phone call, but a phone call, to say sorry Rosie, can't come out to get some wood today, Muffie is in labour....
It's giving me butterflies in the tummy, I can't concentrate, and I just want to do something for her, but know I can't.... It's also bringing back so many memories as she is echoing the path I took with her....
I haven't elaborated too much on labor pain and everything about the whole birthing process, you don't need to hear too many stories before you have your first child... There will be others out there who have already shared that with her, but she is my baby, and I still feel the need to protect...
