So excited to have one of my favorite bloggers, Natalie from Nat The Fat Rat guest posting today! The woman gets my funny bone every time. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful moment with us Nat!when huck was brand new and freshly scrubbed they wheeled him to me in his plastic bed, all tiny and small and wrapped up like a present. my heart skipped a little beat. i was so excited to see him again. i'd forgotten what he looked like already. all i could remember was what he felt like.
as his little cart came closer to my bed i strained to see him. under that little striped hat i could see his nose, my nose, bless the poor dear heart he got my nose, and then there was that feeling again, that strange feeling of quiet and awe as i watched his tiny profile move across the room, as though they were wheeling to me my very own piece of god. a piece of god that i got to take care of.
and in those few seconds here and there when his eyes would focus and he could see me, it was then that i could see me too. maybe for the first time, or maybe just more clearly. but there he was, there i was, and there we were. when i think back to the day he was born, that is what i remember most.
