The time has come!
There was no more waiting. The long winter nights were gone. Spring had sprung in their hearts, for the time was here.
How they had longed for this day to come. Their aching hearts sometimes felt like they were going to burst with the pain that they held. They clung to each other when they felt like they could take no more. Their questions of “Why” and “How long?” seemed to only bounce off the walls as the echoes of silence roared in their ears.
How many nights had she laid awake not being able to sleep? How many nights had she rocked in the rocking chair pretending that her empty arms were full?
They wanted to hear the sound of little feet running down the hall and see fingerprint smudges on the walls.
Their refrigerator was too bare. It should be decorated with a toddler’s art.
Would the names “Mommy and Daddy”, ever be meant for them? Or would they always hear them directed to someone else in the crowd?
Would he ever get the chance to pick up his child in his strong arms, throwing them up in the air and catching them again? Would he hear the words, “Again Daddy, again!” Then would he feel the touch of their small hand tucking itself into his as they looked up at him smiling and saying, ” I love you Daddy!”
Would his heart know how it felt to be melted by his child’s touch and words?
Would she ever be able to sing lullabies to her sweet child? Or would they remain silent, trapped in her heart, never to be heard.
She remembers how the hurt in her heart was so real. She remembers all the tears that ran down her cheeks and how on some days all she could do was cry.
The time has come!
There is a little one wrapped in a blanket now looking up at her. She isn’t dreaming, the morning has come. Her little one is here and she is gazing into her precious Mommy’s eyes.
The joy in her heart is bursting and as she looks down at her precious angel all she can do is cry.
This is lovingly dedicated to a dear couple whose prayers have been answered! A couple who has endured a long time of waiting and miscarriages. My heart goes out to the many others out there who are still anxiously waiting for their dreams to be fulfilled.
My dear friend is a Grandma, and I know she was crying too when she laid her eyes on her granddaughter for the first time. Welcome to the world beautiful one! Your wonderful parents have hearts overflowing with love for you!
