Love at first sight
I've often taken surveys asking "Do you believe in love at first sight?" and the answer to this question has changed over the past few years. When it was just Joe and I, my answer was NO WAY, NO HOW!! There (in my own personal opinion) was absolutely NO WAY I could ever look at someone and know that I was in love with them instantly, to me, that was what lust was. I still feel that way about a man and a woman but like I said...My answer to this question has changed. The very first time I saw Ethan and Bryce on the ultrasound monitor I feel in love, obviously a very different kind of love from what Joe and I share but love all the same. And now, here I am again, love at first sight, when we saw our precious Maggie Grace. What amazes me the most though is how Ethan and Bryce reacted to the site of seeing their growing baby sister. It was truly love at first sight. Ever since they saw Maggie on the ultrasound monitor they constantly come to my belly and kiss it, say hello to Maggie and tell her they love her, all of which was on their own doing. I cannot help but thank of my Father, my God in Heaven. He sent His Son to die for us, because He loved us at first sight. A sight that was seen by Him before He created us. Oh what a love and oh what a sacrifice. Maybe for some, it takes being a parent before you are able to realize what love at first sight is but I've learned it's there.
