monday's child

And now she is here. How did the earth ever turn without her? She arrived at 10.06pm on Monday, January 11, 2010 in the most perfect way, into arms that were made to hold her. I cannot believe my good fortune, though I owe many thanks to Kate, Kim, Jacqui, Marlene, Josephine, Harriet and all the other good women who were watching over me and Rosa as she made her way into the world.
Today there are wonderful people enduring terrible sadness and the injustice of it is almost unbearable. All I can do is look around me and see my many blessings, count them, savour them, and be eternally, overwhelmingly grateful. Every one of them is so precious.
