First Love

The first time I saw

love--

it was in

one small hand,

with

a firm grasp,

held fast

in mine.

That bright smile,

that sweet face,

that trust.

Who could not

feel blessed with

such a rare gift?

  2. I love this.
    as a mom I know this feeling of "that first time" we see our children and it's life changing, it's so monumental that you doubt any words could capture it, but your words did.

    Blessed, indeed. XO

    1. Thank you. I get choked up every time I read it, but I'm kind of hormonal right now.

  4. This is beautiful. Children are such beautiful gifts! (I remind myself of this a lot while my eleven-year-old sasses back to me :) )

  5. That is such a special moment. I re-live each and every time my girls take my hand. I love their touch and I count myself so very fortunate to have the experience of being their father. :)
