And Then Some...

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.
