In That Moment

Written for In That Moment.

In that moment, the day both my children were born, I found out what true love actually meant. My first child, 9lb 1, and let’s just say it hurt a bit. Although all that went away when my daughter was handed to me. We already knew the name, it was always going to be Elizabeth, yet she is more of a Lizzie now. When my son was born (9lb 10) I made sure I had all the pain relief on offer. It was much easier, and again, when he was handed to me, all the pain just melted away.

I never worried about my children, looking after them I mean. They were sturdy, not fragile in the least. I could look after them, without over thinking my role as a mum. Both adults now, I find it hard that my daughter will be thirty-two this year.

The memory, is as fresh, as the day I watch my granddaughter being born. It is an amazing thing to watch. Lots of swear words, some of which the nurses had never heard of. Some of which I had never heard of.

As I held this little baby in my arms, in that moment I knew what true love was, the trauma is forgotten. Being a grandmother is the most amazing thing. I am lucky enough to have a step grandson too.

I count myself lucky, and have something that money cannot buy.
