The morning sunrise was brilliant.
They enjoyed breakfast on the patio.
A game of chess in the garden was their plan for later that afternoon.
Suddenly, a cramp caused her body to flinch.
The laborious suffering of childbirth had begun.
A precious child would be joining them soon.
Their lack of experience weighed heavy, draining their emotions.
They felt anxious; yet, they’d been waiting months for this moment.
With tear filled eyes, she grasped his hand and flinched again.
The physical pain would soon reward them with a glorious gift.
A gift filling their hearts with immeasurable happiness and love.
