I don’t normally write heartfelt stuff, but today I’m feeling a bit sentimental. I’ve certainly never wrote about this…
I watched her sleeping next to me, her chest rising and then gently falling. A quiet sob got muffled behind her closed lips and then her eyes suddenly opened wide. They stared at me as if questioning who I was and then slowly, the corners of her mouth lifted and that big smile spread across her beautiful face.
I looked over at the bedside table, checking the time and then looked at the photo of my wife, her eyes penetrating mine and melting my heart.
How can I love two people so much?
The thing was, I had to make room for another. Today I was going to pick up my wife and my second baby girl from the hospital.
I am a very lucky man.
The above is almost a true account. My wife had to stay in hospital twice, due to having a Cesarean for both our daughters. The second of which could have been fatal for both my wife and daughter if she’d have gone into labour, but that’s another story….
You can comment if you want to, but this was just a personal and heartfelt scribble….
