Brevity has never been my strong suit. However, when Chalkboard Dad unveiled The Father 100 (no, it’s not a NASCAR race), I felt compelled to give it a shot. The requirement to write a post using no more than 100 words around a one word theme was quite a challenge. I am happy with my first effort around this week’s word “Love”. I hope you enjoy it.
I can feel each breath she breathes as she sleeps on my chest.
Momentarily I see her dark blue eyes staring back at me.
Reassured that I am still there she comfortably lays her head back down,
Returning almost immediately to a careless slumber.
It is a familiar, yet fleeting feeling; passing in a moments time.
Like her brother she will soon yearn to explore her world, breaking from my embrace.
Still, fatherhood is just as good the second time around.
Reminding you of all that is good in the world,
And of a love that you never knew existed.
Are you a parent with a blog? Want to play along?
