It’s not the easy ones…

January 8th, 2010 § 0 comments

I realized something today. Or was reminded of it afresh.

It’s not the easy labors and births that teach you the most.

At least, not usually.

Usually, it’s the struggles that teach you the most about what works. And what doesn’t. What to try. Or not.

How to really support the client and their family, and the other midwife. Even when you are tired, hungry, and so ready to be done!

How to give your all. And then give even more.

It’s like our walk with the Lord. It is the trials, and the struggles, and the valleys that draw us closer to Him.
