Sunday Still Life

Sunday Still Life is an evolving mindfulness project; an weekly invitation to pause the busy of our days, to re-center and celebrate the beauty and depth of life. If you are leave inspired to join in, please leave a link in Erin’s comments.

I waited to hear her first cry eagerly. It didn’t come right away, at least not fast enough for a Momma’s ears and heart. I felt my own breath pause waiting to take the next alongside hers. She was beautiful, looking instantly like herself and my other babies, but so very still. I heard the nurse ask how things were going over there and my doctor reply that she was trying to hold her breath. In my mind’s eye everything went still as we waited, and then, there it was, that glorious sound of new life.
