Denver wrote about his perspective of Charlotte’s birth, but we figured it would be nice for me to share my perspective as well. There might be some details he didn’t notice – not that he ever does that…
Alright, here’s the story. I decided to write this while we’re still at the hospital, because it’s all fresh in my mind.
Will it be weird reading the husband’s perspective of the birth story? Maybe. But Sabrina’s busy teaching our baby how to properly maneuver a nipple…so here I am.
A while ago, when I was teaching Sunday school, I mentioned that we all tend to have what I like to refer to as “pet topics”. The things we choose to think about when we don’t really have to think about anything.
Like when we’re called on to give a comment on something in church, and we think, “Well I don’t know much about that, but I have quite a lot to say on this other topic ‘cause I think about it all the time.”
For me that topic is encompassed in forgiveness, repentance, and the Atonement. All of those thoughts meshed into one.
“Don’t worry about what other people think.”
As a person who thinks too much, and having developed a habit of sharing many of my insecurities with others, I’ve grown accustomed to my friends telling me not to worry so much about what others think.
