Daily Prompt: Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy

We cry for lots of reasons: sadness, pain, fear . . . and happiness. When was the last time you shed tears of joy?

When my youngest daughter was only 17, she lost her right tube and ovary. A cyst had grown on her ovary and became so large that it twisted her tube and cut off all blood supply to the ovary. By the time the doctor’s figured out what was wrong, the ovary was dead. Her right tube and ovary had to be removed. The doctors reassured us that she would still be able to have babies if she wanted.

Fast forward to 8 years later: She found the man she wanted to settle down with and they wanted a baby. We had all worried that she wouldn’t be able to have a child, but to our surprise, about 2 weeks before Christmas 2012, she told me she was pregnant. We rejoiced but didn’t want to tell the whole family yet. In January, 2013, I went with her to the doctor for the first sonogram.

That’s when I cried. The moment we saw the ‘peanut sized’ baby, and he was just dancing around and we could see his tiny heart beating away, I cried. I cried with joy!

I was able to go with her to the doctor for her second sonogram last Friday. This sonogram revealed to us that he is definitely a boy. I didn’t cry this time; maybe I was too overwhelmed with joy to cry.
