Labor and Delivery

I just got off the phone with my sister (Cindi - who lives in canada) and she told me that my sister (Elizabeth - who lives in England) is in labor. Her due date was yesterday and her water broke just a few minutes ago and her contractions are 2 minutes apart.  I have never felt so far away from her...everything in me wants to hop on a plane and help her through labor and be one of the first to meet her baby! Alas, I cannot. I know "they" say that you're not supposed to remember labor and the pain but, because I just had Clara 2 months ago my memory is keen - I remember everything! My emotions are high! Elizabeth is 15 months older then me and one of the sweetest women you will ever meet. She's one of those girls who is amazing at everything and has always wanted to be a mom. Today is her day and I couldn't be more proud.

She never found out if it was a boy or girl and I don't know her choices for names so everything will be a surprise. I can't wait...but, I know I have to!

It makes me miss her so much...I'm praying her labor is fast and painless! I'll keep you posted.
