I was thinking of this year and one of my best highlights are the births that I have supported and the wonderful couples with which to have the privilege to share their birth journey…
So I include my translation of a wonderful Swedish Christmas carol from Carolla to think of when breastfeeding (or trying to get your little one to sleep!) in the middle of the night:
Who has lit the star that reflects in your eyes?
Who took the darkness away?…
Are you one of any thousand or are you THE ONE that we are waiting for?
You my little child, that an angel has named,
Are you earths hidden treasure- that I have
been given to protect this night?
Is it really the King of Heaven that I hold in my embrace?
Imagine God choosing the vulnerability of a tiny baby to get close to us!
Have a wonderful Christmas and hope you can relax together as a family!
