DALLAS FORT WORTH - REAL ESTATE AGENT WITH DFW FINE PROPERTIES

 

The most memorable Christmas holiday for me was in December, 1973. Due to pregnancy complications, my daughter and I weren’t released from the hospital until 10 days later, on the 24th day of December. I was thankful for my neighbor who gave us his car to drive to the hospital in time for her to be born and for letting us have his car to come home from the hospital. Winter and cars in Chicago can be unpredictable, just like the birth of a baby. A miracle is the gift of life. No one gets through life without the services rendered to others without wanting anything in return. Receiving a car at a time in need was a way of expressing "loving your neighbor as yourself." It was during this season that the true meaning of Christmas became apparent.  

I became aware of how many sacrifices are made every time a child is born and just how precious life is. It was the first time in my life, I witnessed the many sacrifices nurses make to help us with our everyday challenges. Those days spent in the hospital showed me each day nurses devoted their lives to miracles. With their loving arms, knowledge, and patience, nurses give with unselfish love. Nurses are angels on earth. They are always working, dedicating their lives so that babies are born and people can live. Every time a snowflake falls, I am reminded, somewhere in this world, a child is born. A miracle is a universal blessing received through the process of giving and receiving. 

Because of the care I was given during a very scary time in my life, I still give thanks for that silent night, that holy night my baby was born. Lamaze lessons weren’t something offered to me at that time. It was nurses who held my hand, told me when to push, and placed my loving baby in my arms. From them, I learned how to give milk, change a diaper, and bathe a baby. But it was through the love of God and those nurses whom I am most thankful, I learned, the miracle of birth, life, love, and compassion is worth all the sacrifices made and shared on earth. Christmas is a time to remember the miracle of birth and the countless examples of doing the right thing, at the right time, for all the right reasons so that others may live and learn by the Golden Rule.

P.S. My baby is all grown up and she still loves to play with Reindeers.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS,CRB - You were a bright star in your mother's eyes from the moment you were born. I'm sure you filled her heart with gladness and joy. I do believe you came into this world at just the right time, and you made the perfect first impression and a grand entrance too! 

I can vouch there's something magical about being a mom and delivering a child just in time for Christmas! To your mom, you were Joy to the World!

Patricia Feager ~ hi Patricia... I love that story about the doll house. Amazing what we "take away" as children. As a childe, I always thought the world was in black and white when my mother was growing up because all the photos from her formative years were black and white.

Patricia, what a heart warming story. Nurses are angels here on earth. Having watched them take care of multiple family members during cancer and their final days I will always honor nurses and Dr's. Your daughter is beautiful, and the picture you included in perfect.

My son was born on Christmas Eve morning. Spoiler...that will most likely be my Christmas memory, LOL.

Is that the daughter living in Switzerland? I'll call her Heidi. LOL

Childbirth is something I am so blessed to have experienced three times, but NEVER want to experience again! A pain like no other, for a reward like no other!

This is another enchanting tale from you Patricia. I love how the birth of your daughter opened your yes ( and heart ) as to what's most important. Births have a way of doing that to us. :)  The photo with the reindeer and your closing comment is priceless.

Michael Jacobs - I remember giving birth and all the events that led up to that moment. As soon as she was born, I said to myself, I'm her Shepard and I'm prepared to shield my flock. After my son was born, I got overly protective. Although I hated my spouse at the time, I look back and was grateful he MADE me stay home and give up my job that paid more than he earned. So he worked 3 jobs. But little did I know, it was the greatest responsibility, most challenging, and definitely, the most enjoyable experience I ever had.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - Only another mother, like yourself would understand how giving birth "opened," my eyes! When I saw that she had red hair, I was ashamed of myself for eating all those barbecue potato chips and made a promise to God, that I would learn to cook healthy foods for my family. Biology was one of those classes that didn't interest me, so after I delivered, I got more interested in the anatomy, DNA, our genes, etc. Having birth, as you know is a crash course in education that never ends. In my opinion, every Mother should be entitled to a PhD automatically.
