That is when my water broke. It was time. Frantic, I cried out for my husband, thankful he was home to help. I couldn’t even move. I didn’t know what to do!
When the time came, and I heard that little cry for the first time, it was as if the world stood still. My heart swelled with so much joy and awe that every ounce of pain or fear that I felt the moment before was numbed. I remember them sewing me up after my C-section and feeling like I was on cloud nine. I met her. My daughter! It was worth it! And I knew I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
