My Heart Beats Outside My Body
Friday, March 27, 2015
He is my joy. He is my whole world, my night, my day. He is my dreams, my hopes. He is the future. He knows me unlike anyone else. The bond, the connection; it is love in its purest form. He brings me the greatest highs, and picks me up from the greatest lows. He is the reason for my fears and tears, and also my loudest and proudest cheers. He is my boy. My son. My one and only sweet, sweet child.
“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did - that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that - a parent's heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.”- Debra Ginsberg
"Making the decision to have a child -- it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."- Elizabeth Stone
“No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you’re the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.”
