Firsts...

The first time our eyes met.

Our first date, our first kiss, the first time we acknowledged the depth of our feelings.

The first time we called each other "husband" and "wife."


When I first gave him the news that we were going to be a family of three.

The first flutters of movement from within.

The first time we held her.


The first time I realized I was really and truly a mother.

The first time I nursed her.



Her first words, her first steps, the first time she called me "Mama."

The first time I told her she was going to be a big sister.

The first time he looked into my eyes.


The first time she kissed his tiny hands and told him she loved him.
 

Not the first time I have taken note of how blessed I am, and certainly not the last.
