The First Baby

There was lots of pushing, pain and encouragement in that delivery room. But at last he came. The midwife cleaned them off wrapped him up and gave him to us. It was so exciting. We were holding our first born son. Neither my wife nor I had ever had feelings like this before. We held this bundle of life and thought of his smallness. We studied his tiny fingers and his bright eyes. We watched him squirm and wriggle. We listened to his cries and breaths. They were too wonderful. We stopped, prayed and thanked God for our wonderful gift.
