Mundane Moments

In a world of little things
How can you find words big enough

How do you describe the anticipation
of folding a mountain of small outfits
or buying your first set of newborn diapers

How can you explain the joy
of fingers aching from hours of carefully stitching
a less than perfect quilt

How can you tell the story
evoked by movement only you're aware of

How do you define the love you feel
for someone you've never met
or even laid your eyes on

Tiny moments like these fill my days
and although at first they may seem mundane
they carry a lifetime of longing

  1. Once Bubba arrives there will be so many more moments that words just can't describe. So glad you're enjoying these moments. I can't believe you're 26 weeks already!! Time has flown by, I know probably not for you though. :)
