hoping soul

So, our due date is one calender month from today....

'The exact science of one molecule transformed into another - that Mabel could not explain, but then again she could not explain how a foetus formed in the womb, cells becoming beating heart and hoping soul.' Eowyn Ivey The snow child

  1. The exact science escapes me too - but it is a marvellous thing, that forming of a proper little person, with opinions and likes and hopes all of it's own.
    Take it easy over the next month!

  2. How very exciting - even when you know the science (or possibly more so when you know the science) I think creating a baby is magical.

  3. On an episode of Call the Midwives someone said childbirth is 'the commonplace miracle'. I think we often forget how so very special it is. My sister is also due on June 9. I will be thinking of both of you that day.

  5. Lovely quote ... I suppose we are all hoping souls really, but a newborn hoping soul is so precious and special. Very best wishes. xCathy
