A Miracle

Awhile back, I was listening to a talk show on the radio on the way home from work. It was one of those deals where they have people call in and share their personal problems and they have listeners give them advice. I don't remember the topic exactly but it revolved around pregnancy, and one of the DJs said something to the effect of, "Blah blah blah...and don't give me that crap about childbirth being such a miracle, it's not. Women do it every day. It's just science, blah blah blah." I so badly wanted to call in and tell him that it IS a miracle that people make it to full term and deliver healthy babies every day, because there are so many of us out there who do not. And I believe that. How miraculous the whole process is, from conception through all the growth and development to the ridiculous act of birthing a child, it is a miracle!


  1. Until some people see the bad, they just can't see the good.

    I agree...babies are a miracle!

  2. I feel the SAME WAY. It drives me nuts when people say it's not a big deal...because it is, for me. And you. And way too many other people. :(

  3. Karen,
    I agree it is a miracle. I have a vague memory of listening to a similar (maybe the same) show. Too make people take the experience for granted.
