I look at you and we are both in the most perfect of moments. You reach out with your hand to caress my face while we exchange smiles and giggles. Nothing could ever top this. Suddenly my happiness is struck by a strange feeling that diminished the bright smile that I had.
A bitter-sweet feeling.
A feeling that came after picturing my baby grow and thinking that this moment will change or it will never be the same as it is now. You won’t be a baby forever.
Who is not afraid to let go?
If only I could freeze this moment forever; it’s so perfect.
I kept holding you, contemplating your baby face, as I processed this reality.
I can’t believe that you are so little and I have already identified these feelings as a mom. I know it’s normal to have them. A mom can’t help to get this feeling but she must know what to do with it.
On the present time, it is my opportunity to indulge and savor this moment while it last.
I am glad we had this moment.
As the days go by and as you grow, we will have different moments. I know all of them will be special. They will create the great masterpiece of our relationship and will fill our family with so much meaning.
