thank you baby

"My God, my Adored One, my King, my Desire! What tongue can voice my thanks to Thee?" -Baha'u'llah

I woke up singing a version of this I learned at Louhelen in my head because it was one of the last things that happened in a crazy pregnancy dream last night. And I felt really grateful to be left with that as a wake up thought, especially since it made me feel grateful for other things. I mostly felt it as thanks for my sweet baby, three and a half inches long, looking very human now, living a hidden life inside me, almost still a secret, even after people know she's there. Geez, it makes me cry. Love to everybody today.

This makes me sigh and want to cry for the sheer beauty of it. Much love --

Dear Bahiyyih,
Ive been loving your transmissions lately. The pictures of the cousins remind me so much of all our pictures of cousins over the years.

Your writing is so good.

Love Patty

I can hear the music as I read. What a blessing, mamcita. All is well in your corner of God's world.
