Baby Shower For A Co-Worker
--by Aurelia, posted Jul 7, 2007
I work in a place of mostly women. We love to celebrate ... birthdays, weight loss successes, bridal showers and of course baby showers. We have little parties or cakes.
Not too long ago, one of our "friends" from work , Joy -- a young, 22 year old -- became pregnant. We've know her for over 4 years, since she started work here right after High School. But she wasn't married and my women co-workers weren't supportive of her pregnancy.
As the months rolled on, Joy was clearly happy to be having this baby. I asked if anyone was going to give her a baby shower and for the most part they thought it would NOT be in good taste to do so since she wasn't married.
Because I knew the financial burden would fall on me, I discussed it with my husband. And we decided that I would give her a baby shower and whoever wanted to come would make it. After all, this was about Joy. She really NEEDED help and support.
Well, it was a beautiful baby shower and it was definitely appreciated. I loved planning it and decorating for it! And you know what? Almost everyone came and I could tell they were happy to be there supporting her.
When it feels right in your heart, just take the lead.
please keep up with your good work

"When it feels right in your heart, just take the lead." I believe it is God talking to us and you not only heard, you took action! YEAH!!!!
