Just one day.
Today, I found out someone I knew just gave birth to a baby boy. It's alway nice to hear news of this nature, even if you don't know them that well.
Later in the evening, I found out a good friend of mine will have problem having a baby. My friend also told me she had been suffering from insomnia these past few weeks. Her doctor placed her on one week's medical leave to rest. I think she's taking the news harder than she allows herself to admit.
We take a lot of things for granted. Things like having children. Some of us put it off, thinking we'll get around to having off-spring soon. Then one day it hits you - you've put it off too long and now the priviledge has been forfeited.
