You know what's awesome about birth, babe?

What's that?

It's was one of the biggest days of these two women's entire lives, because their babies were born, and - and - you get to be there for it.  And for me - all it is is Thursday.  But for them - it's a day that they'll never forget.  I can't believe I get to be there for all of those days for the rest of my life.

Well, I can't think of anyone better to be there for them than you.

I'm so lucky.  I just can't believe how lucky I am.

So are they, he tells me.  And I laugh because this can't possibly be my life.

And yet it is.

Welcome to the world, baby girls.  Today was an awesome day to be born.

Beautiful. Such an amazing thing to have the privilege of witnessing every day. You get to see people's greatest joys and greatest losses and it's so awesome that you are someone who cares so much, instead of someone who is just doing a job to get paid.
