The first time

The first time

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Something I wrote for my almost 10months old niece. If love has a form, then it is certainly what I feel for my niece and which is beyond explainable.

"
I remember the first time I saw you, you were new to this world, 
oblivious, sleeping, wrapped in a purple baby blanket. 
The first time I held you in my arms and you stretched, opening your eyes a little. 
The first time you wrapped your tiny little hand around my index finger and gripped tight. 
The first time you cried and I felt my heart clench. 
And the first time you smiled looking up at me, 
your eyes filled with wonder, trying to remember faces, perhaps. 
All these times and memories to be cherished 
and many more to come, as you, my baby girl, continue to grow. ..

Aloha Yumna, what beautifully loving words. Your statements are so elegantly simple but brimming with sincerity. This is very special and an aunts bond with a little one is a sacred one. So many ‘firsts’ each one precious. Adorable picture too! Many mahalo.

What a beautiful expression of love, of the heart as it opens to the most precious of gifts in our lives... your dear niece. There is nothing so transforming as sharing the moments of a new life in this world, the joy and wonder, wanting to take away all the suffering and become a shield from the world. Can feel your light only shining brighter as each line breathes from you deep, rich heart.

Your words awaken the truth and beauty of what really matters in this world... thank you... :)
How beautifully and sincerely you write about that darling little girl. Seems she's more than special to and for you. And always will be. There really are unique moments when a heart jumps a thousand beats and love just sings the entire body thrilled and alive. Seems by your words, you felt it for Aatika that very first time you helD her smallness next to your heart... wonderful, blissful... precious. The depth of your love and wonder is undeniably genuine. Thank you for sharing.
