I Still Tear Up

by adustyframe ~ April 21st, 2014

When baby was brand new, I would often tear up when holding him and looking at his precious face and sweet little hands. I’m pretty sure a lot of that was hormones but a lot of it was being overwhelmed with thankfulness.

I still often tear up when I look at him.

Tonight, while getting him to sleep, I held him in my arms and watched his sweet little face while he rested against me. I kissed his little cheeks and said, “Thank you, God for giving us this little boy.” Then I got a lump in my throat and my eyes got misty.

I thought the other day that if I hadn’t (with God’s help) stayed with my husband, I wouldn’t have had this precious little guy. Maybe in a way, he’s my reward for enduring. Maybe not–maybe he’s just God’s special blessing no matter what our story was before him. Nevertheless, I’m so thankful he’s here–even if it means I cry once in awhile.
