La Posada – Thu 8 Dec – Being parents

img_0949No lie in today as the builder arrived to mend the hole in the ceiling. Keith had asked my advice on how to remove a joist. It was good to lend a hand. I didn’t have any tools but could use Keith’s.

We stayed around the house chatting and talking about what it’s like to be a parent.

Jeanette and Tony said it was the most wonderful feeling, and that every child is unique and that we should listen to advice but then learn our own way.

“Nobody will know your child like you”.

Of course, they did not know just how special our baby will be. A blessing to the whole world.

I expect that every parent feels that way.

But we know that we have been chosen. That our child is the Holy Child.
