The Most Precious Gift

Drifting lazily in softly woven dreams
At the edge of a new adventure
Words heard through a quiet filter
Cause her to leap with joy at love
Expressed as laughter
Felt as ripples
Moving across quiet waters…..

She stretches forth a hand
Seeking the source of love
Floating around her
The soft barrier of her world
Trembles slightly as it moves
She tumbles about while finding
The rhythmic sway which lulls her to sleep

Drifting lazily in softly woven dreams
At the edge of a new adventure
Translucent eyelids flutter ever so slightly
With her tiny thumb in her mouth
She waits in quiet anticipation
Ever so slightly her world shifts
Drawing ever closer to the unknown

At any moment, the adventure may begin
It will be strange ,but familiar as well
Words heard through her filtered world
Will be repeated joyfully at her arrival
Loving arms ready to cradle her
Will keep her safe..
She will be rocked to sleep listening to the
Familiar.. rhythmic ..beat..
Of her mother’s heart

Drifting along in lazily woven dreams
At the edge of a new adventure
Surrounded in sleep…by ripples of love
Ever so slowly..
Unseen changes begin
Final preparations are underway
Drawing ever closer to the unknown
Her birth day approaches….

    Trisha – - I could write here all the typical adjectives and kudos but somehow it simply would not convey….so I’m just going to say thank-you for this description of what God’s greatest gift is – life, and ponder how anyone could think it to be anything less.
