The most precious gift I have ever had didn't come in a box or in a pretty paper sack. It wasn't free. In fact, it cost me more than I have ever imagined i could pay. Im talking about the gift of the love and trust of a little baby girl. My Kathryn. She is my sunshine and lights up my life. Its an amazing feeling to be the only voice in a crowd that will turn her head. That no matter how many experienced nurses and doctors handle her, she would rather have mommy take care of it. How a little tear can be dried up just by calling her "hunny bunny."
It has not been an easy feat to arrive at this, her first half year mark. A surprise cesarean, a near stroke that rushed me back to the hospital three days post partum, two serious infant illnesses that landed her in the hospital for a week, the breastfeeding that wouldnt work and the many, many, sleepless nights that still come from time to time, sound like traumas too hard to endure. The truth is this- I would do it again if I had to. For Katy, I would lay my life down...in a heartbeat.
The love and trust of a daugter- a precious gift. I love you forever, tiny lady.
