She didn't come easily to us, but she was certainly worth the wait! She was worth every "failed" cycle, and every uncontrollable crying sessions when it got to be too much. She was worth every sad, sleepless night I lay awake wondering if we would ever be lucky enough to have her. She's here now though, and that's all that matters.
As I looked at her tonight though, some different thoughts came to mind as well. I thought how amazing it is that her life is so brand new! She's made no mistakes. Has no regrets. She's never experience great sadness (unless you count all the times I tell her "NO" when she tried to push the buttons on the DVD player). She's never experienced loss or betrayal. Never had a broken heart.
Her world is full of wonder! Everything is new! It's exciting. Her world is to be explored. The smallest things amaze and delight her. A bird flying over. A flower in bloom. A puppy dog kiss. A new song. A raspberry on her tummy. Swinging in the park. She's taking it all in, processing it. It's all an adventure, and she's loving every second.
So far her life has been filled with warm milk and cozy sleeps. Play time and cuddles. Lots of hugs, loves and kisses, and of course, unconditional love. So far, life has been good.
Love and Hugs
