Slipping through my fingers

Eight years ago today, I lay in a hospital bed, marveling at the tiny being next to me.

My first-born, my little girl, my love.

We were inseparable that first year. And still, even now, she loves to cuddle and snuggle and  curl herself around me.

Tomorrow, my friend Amy will give birth to a baby girl. And a few years from now, I’m sure she, too, will listen to this beautiful, poignant song and weep.

One thought on “Slipping through my fingers

  1. Well, that just wiped me out this morning! Brought back so many memories of you and your sisters, and more than a few regrets of all the things I didn’t do with you. Treasure every moment with your precious little girl.
