I was at my doctor’s appointment on Friday for my LAST prenatal visit (Woo-hoo!) when I noticed this poem on her wall for the first time.

I hope you find it as beautiful as do I.

It is important to me
that I spend a part of
the next few hours here
alone with you
in the darkness.

You and I will never
be this close again
by morning you will be
a tiny person
all your own.

No longer the kicking
demanding bulge
in my body that
I have grown to love so well.

I pray that God will safely
guide you on your journey
and I ask him for the strength
to help you all I can.

Again you signal
your impatience to be free-
Time to wake your Daddy.

    Mmmm… it gives me goosebumps. I was thinking about you yesterday. Bri and I are going to be in Warner Robbins on Friday. Maybe we could swing by your way to see the new baby? Have you picked a name yet?
