On the way to get that cup of coffee~

the phone rang......Olivia had decided to stop practicing and actually get down to the business of being, leaving the coffee on the counter and Hunter at his middle school...I headed in to the hospital.

My little sister is one of those women who are born to have children....her water broke at 8:30 a.m. and Olivia was born at 11:45 a.m.....and Olivia's soldier Daddy, 10,000 miles away in Afghanistan, was "there" to see and hear it all....through the miracle of modern technology....and the lap top sitting on the table next to the bed. He saw the birth, he watched the cutting of the cord, and even got to sing "You are so beautiful" to the Mama!

It was a beautiful experience.....five women - two grandmothers, an aunt, a niece and best friend, were all there in almost complete silence watching the miracle of birth...each from their own perspective....while a hero watched from his place of service; his place of sacrifice for our country, his wife, and his two daughters....for you and for me.

Welcome to the world, little Olivia...I was honored to be there for your grand entrance......and after all your was most definitely grand!
