I rocked my baby to sleep tonight.
It's been a while since I've done that.
She sucked her thumb and nestled in close, and I breathed in her sweet smell.
Her room was dark. Her lullabies played softly in the background.
A few times I wondered if I should put her in her crib.
No, not yet. I rocked her some more.
I reminded myself that this day will never come again. It's almost over now.
There is no place I'd rather be.
I thanked God over and over for her while I rested my cheek on her head.
My eyes filled with tears over the immense amount of love I feel for this beautiful girl.
I told myself "remember this".
And I will.
And then some.
