First


Do you remember the first time you laughed?
How about the first time you cried?
Or when your eyes first gazed upon the ocean
Or you saw your very first shooting star darting across the sky

Do you remember meeting your very first friend?
Or who took you out on your first date?
How about the first time you held someone's hand
Or your very first kiss

Butterflies swirling around your stomach
That feeling happens the very first time we do anything
Nervous fright mixed with pure excitement
A feeling that cannot be anticipated

It hits you
Fast
Strong
And it is amazing

Nothing compares
To the very first time
You do something
Embrace each first

Yes, this word gives us lingering memories of magic. The beginning of a new dawn, a new chapter in our lives! We see things differently after our firsts; a door has been open and a new adventure begins~ Jennifer...this is wonderful!

We are never the same, after...a transformation of soul and senses allows us to be reborn!
