i'll try this a while; see how it goes. I'd like to make this a public blog for area midwives - -a sort of group discussion and communication place.
but today's entry is pretty basic.
The large issue is whether I can make arrangements to go to peggy's funeral. She was a nice woman to know -- sad to think of her dying so suddenly and so young. I was brought up in a culture which MANDATES attendance at a funeral..and excuses of time, expense, inconvenience are never allowed. It's 300 miles, but that isn't much time in the scheme of a lifetime -- i've been to double features that long! (heck, the starwars trilogy was longer than that!)
soi will definitely go if i can get coverage for my client due on CHRISTmas. She's extremely unlikely to go into labor before the 24th.
midwives are going from all over the state -- might have a sort of slumber party down there in Ashland.
There's that old irish blessing "May the church be too small to hold all those who come to your funeral" -- it's a good thought.
though we'dbe better people if we honored each other more while we were alive --rather than waiting for the touch of death to bring people in one place to show honor, love, and appreciation.
