When You Were Born

When you were born
you came quietly,
and with eyes deep as an ocean
you looked at me
and I looked at you, 
and I thought to myself,
I know you!
And my heart heard you say,
I know you!
In that moment
I knew
you were a gift 
from God
and that I would love you

-Dianna Hutts Aston


  1. Wow I got teary-eyed from that poem which is unusual and totally unexpected for me. It's beautiful. So sweet.

    ps. I forgot to tell you that I love your new blog look!

  2. Such a sweet post! I'm so excited you are a Mommy and experiencing all the wonders of Mommy hood. It really does get better. Trust me :). Lately, I look at Emmy pretty much all the time and think how stinkin' cute she is. I loved that poem!
