Hello bbb,

CONGRATULATIONS To the happy parents-to-be! :clap:

Does this mean you will turn into Bodom_Good_Boy now? - after all you have to set the example for the precious little bundle arriving in June. :jumping:

Jeez that made me laugh!
Oh dear, I think I better get myself a chair closer to the ground so I don't hurt myself when I fall off it again!
Congrats again Bodum "Good" Boy!
Ahh haaa!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

In sitting meditation stay with that ‘which knows’ everything. Don’t try to go to objects. Let the objects come to you. Try not to react to objects. Whatever arises — greed, aversion, pain, itchiness, metta, likes or dislikes etc. — watch with equanimity, without getting involved, without clinging to it. Stay in the middle path.- Shwe Oo Min Sayadaw

Wonderful news!!! Congrats :) Is this your first? (Sorry if you already answered this.. I zipped thru the comments.) I have two boys, and I miss that 'girl enery' (being the only girl in the house). I'm very happy for you and your wife.
