sunday night sadie had fallen asleep in my arms
I held her close for as long as i could and i didn’t want to let her go, my arms wrapped around her tight and her hand clutching mine
I whispered now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep……
it feels like just yesterday she as fighting for her life in the nicu and now she is 2
as I held her I couldn’t help but hold back tears
where does this precious time go?
I just wanted to freeze it
freeze that moment
but instead I closed my eyes and listened to her sleep so peaceful. I put my phone down, I stopped, and I took in that moment.
secretly hoping they would all just stop growing and that time could stand still, in this moment, forever.
