#TBT – A Moment of Pure Emotion

#TBT – A Moment of Pure Emotion

I wanted to share a really special picture for this Throwback Thursday. This picture was taken at 12:41am on March 4th, 2006.

In my life, up to that point, I’d never had my emotions outside of my control.  However, everything changed the moment I witnessed Elliott being born. 

I can’t explain what happened to me in that one moment but it was like a lifetime worth of emotions came pouring out.  The moment I saw Elliott for the first time, I cried uncontrollably.

I’ve only ever experienced this one other time and that was when Emmett was born. 

It was like a dam had broken and soul just purged itself.  It’s simply indescribable, so I’ll stop trying.  What I love about this picture is that it was taken the very moment I my eyes first met my son. 

I remember being so confused because this was a truly happy moment and yet I was literally a blubbery mess, who could barely hold himself up. I almost look horrified..  🙂

Anyway,  this is the picture I choose to share with you all of this Throwback Thursday
