Those Beautiful Eyes



     I couldn’t wait!  When the time finally arrived I feared the unknown and the pain.  There was no turning back.   Through my joyful tears I said hello.  Her lusty cries were silenced and her eyes showed recognition.  She knew me! 

     The torturous pregnancy had been worth it.  My baby recognized me and my heart filled with an overwhelming sense of love, joy, and peace like I have only ever experienced once more in my life with the birth of my son. 

     Ever since that first glimpse when I melted into the windows of my child’s soul, I have been enraptured.

  1. Kids are pretty darn special. My son recently bought me a pair of cowboy boots. I've been wanting cowboy boots forever.

  2. Nothing compares to the first sight of your newborn. *sigh*. So many years ago for me...1969.

  3. Very sweet. I never had kids and have zero experience with babies! I am enjoying my stepkids even though they are in their early 20s.

    1. Jyothi, it was one of the single most joyous moments of my life. It was at that moment I had an epiphany that this was what life was all about. Birth, and of course death and all that comes in between. Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comments!
