This photo was taken just a few months ago- back in January. Holding Ivy LaRue, her 1,631st homebirth "catch." (This must have been Ivy's Tyra fierce eyes phase.)
This is Lynda. She is life. And light. And the most giving soul. She is not in pain. She is not in discomfort. She puts others before herself.
What I saw last night was only temporary. Who Lynda is, is forever. Will be remembered forever. And ever. I am so thankful that I got to be someone touched by Lynda's forceps (her hands!) and her ministry.
...We all want to believe that what we do is important. That people hang on to our every word. That they care what we think. The truth is, you should consider yourself lucky if you even occasionally get to make someone, anyone, feel a little better. After that, it's all about the people that you let into your life. - John Dorian, Scrubs.
