Done with the ponderous, the swollen, the out of breath, I
Endure the aching groaning shriek of my body as it brings
Life into a fallen world. A child is born this day.
I have never seen anyone so perfect. Her
Velvet skin shines with the light of a world I’ve seen only in dreams, her wail is an
Echo of the holy child on His arrival here.
Reaching to touch, to hold, to worship, my body and heart are healed,
Yet the sword of our shared humanity, our loss, our love pierces my heart.
Introducing our daughter, Jenny Madelynn, born early this morning at 7 lb. 7 oz. We are overjoyed.
I will be spending my time being Mommy, and see you sometime in the New Year…
