I have seen people spending their Christmas eve in the hospital. I was thinking what does it feel to be in there? instead of having fun in the house they are in the hospital for different reasons.
Yesterday morning after the morning mass, my sister asked me to accompany her doing her morning routine. She is expecting a baby this month and she is doing the walking every morning for her exercise. While walking we are talking about what foods to cook in the preparation for the Christmas eve. After our walking she said, she will gave birth today. I laughed because thought she is just joking. After the walking, the pain continues until we decided to bring her to the hospital yesterday night.
I never thought my question is answered on that day. Yes, we celebrate Christmas here in the hospital. I now know the feeling of being here. Only me, my brother-in-law and m sister. It is so quiet Christmas eve for me. I was in the room waiting for my sister because she is in the delivery room. Though it is a different Christmas for me, it is worth it because I am waiting for the little angel that will soon see the beauty of the world. It is indeed a wonderful gift for the family this year and this Christmas day. Our reason of being here is different from other patient and I am so thankful to God. Merry Christmas everyone,!
