Every rising sun brings stronger contractions than the last, and today I woke with the strong desire to do nothing, to lay in bed and leisurely soak in the day. Instead we headed to the Wild Animal Safari Park. I thought to myself, I must be crazy, walking all day long will leave me reeling in pain by the end of the day...but what if I was in pain regardless? What if? I would kick myself for not enjoying such a glorious day with my family, and what a day it was. The cheer joy on my daughters face as she gazed at "Dah Tigaah!" was worth any pain my body carried. I get it now...why I don't remember my mother sick or tired growing up. The sacrifices you make for your children's happiness are limitless, they have no bounds.
