Pregnancy truly brings out the best in people …
One thing that’s overwhelmed me – in a good way – since finding out I was pregnant is the astonishing kindness and goodwill shown by other people. Family, friends, workmates … even relative strangers … everyone is excited about the baby and wants to know how my husband & I are doing.
We’ve had family members calling regularly and taking the time to knit cardigans, friends sending handy info and, recently, some of my friends who’ve already had babies donated a giant pile of maternity clothing to get me through the coming months.
In a world where there’s so much doom and gloom in the news, it’s heartwarming to know that there’s also an amazing capacity for love and generosity.
