Congratulations, momma! You did it. You’ve ushered a beautiful, breathing, live miracle into this world. That newborn baby cradled in your arms is a game changer, game changer, a little piece of heaven so warm and irresistible that you instinctively know this is the purest thing you’ll ever experience on this side of eternity.
It sounds cliché, but try to soak it up. Understand how the indescribable high of meeting your child is hard to repeat. While I certainly can’t speak for everyone, for childbirth stories can get very complicated, I can say the days my children were born were the best days of my life.
In those hospital rooms, I experienced a joy unlike any joy I’d ever known. I felt the divinity of God’s time (kairos) intersect with the reality of our time (chronos) and transport me to a place so peaceful and perfect that I can only imagine what heaven must be like.
