During this delicate time of the final weeks leading up to a baby's birth is when I try to wrap things up and slow down. Since I think it's important to keep a good sense of humor while pregnant, I was going to list all of the silly things I've been doing lately that I relate to being 8 months along, but instead decided to share these poignant excerpts from Gurmukh, the author of the wonderful book Bountiful, Beautiful, Blissful because I do consider pregnancy a very special gift worth honoring.
"The time with your baby during pregnancy will never come around again. Please do not make this time regular or ordinary. Please do not try to figure it out. What I am saying is, you need a life less complicated. Simplify, simplify, simplify. Surrender, surrender, surrender. Live each precious moment."
"Enjoy every moment of being pregnant, because every moment is part of the experience."
