Tonight, a little girl swims inside her mommy's tummy.
Long legs and a button nose, she's cramped with all her worldly possessions - which include an umbilical cord, ten fingers and ten toes, and a strong, beating heart.
She swims inside her mommy's tummy, and has no idea of what life is like on the other side. All she knows is that she's warm, she's safe and she's loved.
She is loved.
We've no idea what she looks like, but we know she's beautiful. How could she not be, born with a melange of good looks coming from her mom and dad.
Speak nothing of her stunning aunt.
She swims inside her mommy's tummy, and we dream of the future.
She swims inside her mommy's tummy, and we pray about the past.
She swims inside her mommy's tummy, and we are grateful for the present.
Tonight, a little girl is swimming inside her mommy's tummy.
Tomorrow she swims in the sea of life.
