Heart Strings

I thought I wanted another daughter so M would have a sister to share her life secrets and giggles late into the night.

Today I saw my friend's beautiful, healthy, miracle son. I saw the ache for her daughter, but the complete joy in her son. The love of a mother for her children--one no longer here and one ever so present.

He is so perfect. 10 fingers, 10 toes, a little button nose, the sweetest little cry you've EVER heard. A sound that was so rare of their daughter.

And I realized that I would love a son as completely as I love M. As much as my friend loves her daughter and her son. A mother's love.

Praise God.

I have chills reading because I am so relieved and happy for your friend. Yes, praise God for him and for your new little one...girl or boy. I'm hoping boy, you know that.
