Day 100: New beginnings

15 Jul


If you look up the phrase “new beginnings” in the dictionary you may find these words: the point in time or space when something starts. That’s a pretty broad definition. Today I was able to witness a “new beginning” and felt privileged to share in that moment.

The new beginning was the birth of a friend’s son. A few weeks ago I called to ask my friend when the baby was due and was told July 15. I asked if I could bring a quiche when the baby arrived so that it might make the first days a bit easier and was told that that would be okay. Imagine my surprise when I called today to check in and found out that the baby was a week old! I quickly put a quiche in the oven and scheduled a visit.

I adore babies – and was delighted to meet baby Kian today. He weighs just about 6 pounds and while he was not really awake for my visit, I enjoyed watching his facial expressions change from moment to moment. I especially loved when he was nearly asleep, and would suddenly open one eye to peek at us. His mom said it first: he’s a total charmer.

I brought a Spinach, Onion and Pepper Quiche to Kian’s proud parents. I am so very happy that their son has arrived and that he is beautiful and healthy. I wish for the family an abundance of love and all things good.

A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.
