Daily Prompt: Success!

Tell us about a time where everything you’d hoped would happen actually did.
Man, the one time I have a lot to say about a subject, the Daily Prompt limits me to a time. So, I guess I will tell the most important, actually 3 of the most important. See, I just can’t stay with a time.
My oldest daughter, birthed her three daughters, using all natural birthing techniques. I was able to be there for each birth. All three births went smoothly. As I said, I was blessed enough to have seen all three poke their heads, then their wrinkly, little bodies out. I was even blessed by being the one to get to cut the cord on my middle granddaughter!
I cried all three times, from joy and from the miracle that is a birth; a continuation of life. I was simply amazed at my daughter! I had a long, hard three day labor with her. With the first one, she barely grunted, she just stayed focused and completed the job at hand, no whimpers or nothing. Made me a bit sick, but proud anyway. There was no way to help being proud. She just ‘spit’ that baby out.
The second one was not as easy for her, a little groaning and her legs shook from the exhaustion, but she persevered. The third was much like the first. I might have heard a groan or two, but overall it was a very easy birth.
I could go on with my 4th, 5th, and soon to be 6th, but having already overstepped the ‘a time’ limit, I will hush now. 🙂
Well, I just have to add that I’m very blessed and very thankful!
