Three Times In A Row
The only love I've found that I consider forever is the love I've found three times with the birth of each of my children. I wish I could explain, to those who have never felt it, the warmth and joy and happiness that comes even before the baby arrives. Knowing that a little life has started inside of you. That you are responsible for helping this little one thrive for all those months. Hearing the first heart beat, feeling the first kick, the endless tests you allow them to put you through all because you want to do the most you can to ensure this child has a chance. Then comes that first contraction and as scared as you are it doesn't matter because you now have a job to do. You have fallen in love with this baby that you've yet to even touch and now, so close, so right there in your reach, is their first breath, first cry, first giggle, first step, first tooth, first of everything that this great world has to offer and all because of you... I fell in love forever only for me it was times three.
