Her faint cry was heard even though a short distance separated them. Her little eyes remained shut as she squirmed in her bed.Her little feet slightly protruded from the blanket that covered her. The sunshine peeking through the window cast shadows against the wall of the animals dangling from the mobile hanging above her head.
As you lifted her the sunlight touched her little face, her eyes opened to your smile. The journey of hearts intertwined began the moment you first saw her little face, the pain of her delivery was forgotten and joy filled every fiber of your being. As if life was preparing you for the journey flashes of the past flooded your mind.

Love that is unconditional, self sacrificing, forgiving,generous, and ever lasting. Her touch gentle, yet; strong. Hands that worked continuously to improve your life, comfort you, and wipe away tears.
