"You will never regret the present, but you live to it's fullest."
I went to work
And never quit.
Always some young turk
Belly to slit.

Electives by day
Emergencies at night.
With insurance they pay,
Without; they might.

At four in the morning
A baby is born-
Exciting, not boring,
Mamas toil worn.

Missed some blogging,
Sleep was short-changed.
All the attention she's hogging-
Mommy and dad's lives rearranged.

Some days the outcome's quite bad.
Perhaps it's cancer, or drive-by shoot.
This morning the outcome nothing but glad.
Blogging? Sleep? who gives a hoot?

"Big things coming in future. Only a matter of time."

How wonderful it is to experience the cycle of life. Seeing this tiny little baby coming into the world has got to be the most precious thing life can offer a single human being. I love your response to the fortune cookie prompt as it is a reminder of the things that will change for the better, even though the mother's life is changed forever. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful piece with us. Have a nice night.
