This Mother's Joy

I don’t think I have ever had a picture taken of me that has so perfectly captured how I was feeling. This was minutes after Providence was born, while I still lay on the operating table, they brought her over for skin to skin bonding and an attempt at breastfeeding. The moment was magical and it somehow translated well to photograph. I can see the excitement, happiness, and love in one its purest forms shining in my eyes. Almost nine months later, looking back on the joy I felt is staggering and makes my heart smile.
