How much is forever?
– Sometimes only a second.
Alice in Wonderland
It happens that our baby is born to heaven according to his divine plan and, as is common, pain sweeps everything in our life and also with our attention, it completely monopolizes it. Suddenly all we can see through this tunnel vision is that painful moment, that although it has been in the past, you live it over and over again. It is true that it happens and a lot, but it is also true that you have another option, another wonderful alternative.
What if you focus your attention more frequently on your baby’s life?
The time you have been on this plane is perfect, extremely valuable, unique, do not lose sight of it, do not minimize it. If it was a month or several in your womb, if it was 5 months of life or a year, each second is worth remembering but above all, to celebrate. That little kick that made you jump with joy, the pregnancy test that announced that you would be a mother, the first time you saw his face in an echo or at birth, hear his crying call you, see him sleep and dream about him. These experiences are just some gifts that he has given you, they have not vanished or lost value, they are treasures that he kept in the depths of your heart and his, a true gift for eternity. Thank you to life for such a generous gift! Because knowing that his time on earth was so brief, it was his desire to share it with you, in your belly and your lap, he has chosen your soul to accompany him and love him until the end of time.
He decides to pay attention to his life story, to everything that God gave them to live together, those looks and gestures, those hours of breastfeeding, those kisses and caresses, those kicks or that hiccup in your belly, those wonderful and unrepeatable moments that today you know them infinite. That is really your baby, the one that came to give you life and joy, that taught you about true and unconditional love, that made you vibrate a range of emotions, that revealed to you what the gift of life is, but above all, that that since before you were born he loved you and what is more, he continues to love you fervently at every moment.
Focus on what is worth, on what transcends, because we will all inevitably die, it is natural, it is an instant, but existence is infinite.
