We’re on our way to the hospital! Thank you in advance for saying a little prayer that everything goes smoothly for baby and I.
I received this poem a few days ago from a new mother. I cried when I read it and wanted to share these sweet, sweet words with all of you. I’m excited to meet our little one, but will miss the silent moments and movements that occurred between the baby and I. But now it’s finally time to kiss those beautifully created cheeks!
These Last Few Hours
It is important to me that I spend a part of the next few hours here alone with you in the darkness.
You and I will never be this close again.
By morning you will be a tiny person all your own.
No longer the kicking, demanding bulge in my body that I have grown to love so well.
I pray God will safely guide you on your journey tonight,
and I ask Him for the strength to help you all I can.
Again you signal your impatience to be free.
Time to wake your Daddy.
Let’s go, Coach.
Love, Louise (aka Mom)
