Mary’s Diary Entry: 1 AD in the month of Tishrei–
Our son was born today- finally! At times, it seemed this day would never arrive.
I replay the events of today in my mind, over and over, recalling the pain of my labor, the anxiety of wondering if we’d ever find a place to have this baby, then smiling at how it all turned out. My emotions were all over the place! Worried, tired and cranky on that donkey for so long, yet excited knowing I’d soon give birth. My body told me it would be soon.
But then I held him.
