the candle's lit!


Liza's in labor! Liam's coming today! So I've lit the candle Suzanne gave me to signify this wonderful event. Prayers and thoughts go out to one special little family.

Baby Liam was just born! It was about 8:15 pm when I got the call. Mama and baby are doing fine, which is all I need to know. Teresa and Maya are running around in circles, singing, "Liam's birthday! Liam's birthday! Liam is born! Liam is born!" (Later on, at bedtime, they would all sing several rounds of prayers for Liam. Very sweet to hear.) Hooray!

And here's the candle, completely exhausted. Which is probably how the proud parents and that sweet baby are feeling about now after their journey. That's pure conjecture, of course. I know one woman who said, as soon as she had given birth to her first child, "Let's do that again!" I've never heard of that before or since, though. In any case, lots of love to that great mother-heroine, Liza!
