Just now I was lying on my couch, nursing my daughter and watching the big flakes of snow fall outside in the dark. I glanced at the clock to see it was 2:46am and it hit me. Exactly one week ago I was lying in the exact same spot, labouring, sore and scared. I hadn't even met her yet. And today? Just one week later and I simply can not imagine life without her. The smallest shadow of a thought of it enters my mind and I lose the ability to breathe. In just one week my whole life is repurposed; my whole world is as brand-new as hers.
