I was tired but eager. The whole process had been draining both physically and emotionally to say the least and once, I was awash with a wonderful sense of anticipation. Just after the delivery while you were being cleaned, checked and fed, I hardly had a chance to take a glimpse of you. I was so drained that my eyes were shutting down. Even when the nurse held you to my bosom for being fed I could hardly touch you. I was that exhausted and didn’t trust my hands to hold a tiny baby.

I was moved to the ward post-midnight after a 6 hour labor and delivery. As the nurse came in with you wrapped up in soft cotton, I was scared. I wasn’t sure if I would get things right. I held you close to my heart and just as there were a million doubts swimming through my head, you yawned and opened your tiny eyes, giving me a reassuring smile that made my heart sing. It was such a wonderful feeling that no words can describe it. Being a mother is a wonderful feeling, a feeling I cherish.

    Wow…what a post!! Truly engaging and nostalgic!!!
    Yes…even today, when I hold my children’s hand, I get the same wonderful feeling! We should count our blessings that we had this opportunity… not many are blessed though! My heart goes out to all those who are deprived of such a great feeling!

    Love your perspective on this! As a dad, this is a part of parenthood to which I can only observe, not feel. Isn’t it incredible how instant and vast the love is?
