Memories Have Swamped Me

I still remember clearly the day I went into labor, and she was born the next evening. I still feel love so acute that it's pain, when I hold her in my arms. I remember the joy the very first time I held her in my arms. And even being a little jealous of the doctor for being the very first to hold her. It was the same with my youngest daughter. Every parent out there knows that love, that all-encompassing beauty of creating this small wonder.

I still feel the pride of accomplishments she made. Learning to walk, learning to ride her bike. And the fear I felt when she went head first off that bicycle. I saved all the mother's day gifts. I still have the first flower she gave me ... it's pressed in a book.

I've sat and looked through pictures of her as she was growing. Happy memories replay in my mind. Her smiles that lit up my world, and still do. Her laughter that still rings in my mind.

We swore before God to love and protect this gift. With everything we have. Nothing and no one would mar our creation. She would be safe, and happy, and the sun would always shine.

And now the black storm clouds are threatening. The lightning sizzles. The winds blow fiercely. The thunder booms omninously. There on the horizon. Fast approaching, engulfing us in it's fury.

So hold fast My Darling. This storm will only batter you for a while. But it, too, will pass. The sun will come out again. And you will smile and be happy. The world will be at your feet. I love you baby girl.

~Kisses and Hugs, RPR (aka Mom)

RPR....this post makes me feel all the rage, anguish, and sorrow that I felt the day I found out my daughter....who was saving herself for marriage...was . I have no way of knowing what brings out these feelings in you....I only told you this so you would know that I truly understand what you are going through right now. And again....I'm here if you need me.
