No one who has ever brought up a child can doubt for a moment that love is literally the life-giving fluid of human existence. -Smiley Blanton
In my last post I wrote about mourning the loss of my children's newborn stage, and all of a sudden I get to experience the joy that comes from holding a brand new baby all over again. My sister had a natural, amazing, magical birth while her beautiful baby girl took her first breath this week. Lindsay and her husband, Matt, are floating and I can see their hearts are expanding into the realm that you really only know once you become a parent.
I have been floating, too, as I've gotten to hold this sweet soul a little each day. She's so tiny. She smells so good. She is pure love.
And I am a very proud aunt, indeed.
Oh, the cycle of life - what a miracle.
I love this moment.

Your Personal Reflection: There is nothing more refreshing than watching a newborn baby see the world for the first time. What, in your life, are you ready to see with fresh, new eyes?
