This week marked the end of the most beautiful chapter of our lives
I have permanently removed the option of us having more babies
and my heart is so sad.
It is the right decision for us as a family
but the thought of no more newborn
babies, no silky soft snuggles and
no tiny fingers curled around mine
is a heartbreaking idea that
I am struggling to comprehend.
I will move forward and celebrate the
next phase, I will delight in my children
for who they are to become
and not only for what they have been.
And I will forever remain thankful that I was blessed
with six gorgeous souls to train and guide
and three more I get to spend all of eternity
I am recovering well... resting my body and
taking this rare opportunity to do nothing and be pampered.
Having so many big babies took their toll on this body of mine
and it needed quite a bit of repairing.
(They would only do this if I was certain that we would be
having no more, hence the tubal ligation)
I feel so blessed to be surrounded with such love and care
and am grateful for the kindness and nurture
I am being showered with.
Thank you friends.
