The Miracle

The miracle that is life gets me everytime. I am a labor and delivery nurse when I'm not behind a lens, and I still smile ear to ear when a baby is born into this world. How amazing are our bodies, how strong is our will, how amazed are we at this miracle of life. 

Some time close to midnight as I headed to bed a thought flashed through my tired head about a client I was expecting to call me saying she was in labor any day. As soon as I cozied under the covers and plugged in my phone for the night, the message came across..."My water just broke." Knowing how quickly this momma labored, I hopped back out of bed, grabbed my gear, and headed off to the hospital. She labored like a champ, pushed like a boss, and even helped deliver her sweet boy into the world!
