If you could only have one single memory... just a small moment in your life to remember what would it be? And what makes this moment so significant to you??

I love Babies - photo of a baby to go with the discussion on favorite memories
My most cherished memory is holding my babies in my arms for the first time. How quickly I fell in love! I was so overcome with love, protectivness and fulfillment.

The time I spent with my father. He left us when I was 14 and we rarely see him. We don't talk, visit, nothing. He has seen my 15 year old daughter about five times and my son that is five, he has never seen. I would give anything to spend some time with him. Well almost anything.

The memory of having my 2nd child b/c everyone I know and love was there at that special time. I could always keep that memory with me with our families together.

When I was having a conversation with my boyfriend one night over phone and for some reason I ended my sentence with Mr. Kumar{kumar is his surname} and then he replied to my question referring me as Mrs. Kumar. That was the most happiest moment ever of my life.And I will always treasure it though we are not together any more,nothing can replace that special moment of my life.

I think the memory I would choose would be seeing my son for the first time, too. It was really scary for me. I had pain meds through an IV while I was in labor and it messed with my head a little bit but did nothing for the pain. Anyway, my baby came out with just one push but then no one said anything for several seconds. It seemed like hours. Elliott had a knot in the cord and it was wrapped around his neck not once but twice. My Dr. said it was the longest cord he had ever seen. The reason it took him a minute to respond was because he was A. Still trying to get his glove on. B. Unwrapping the cord from his neck. and C. Trying to figure out how my son had survived. When he finally told me that my baby was okay, though, I was so relieved. It was the best moment of my life to see him and hold him and know that even though I had been that close to losing him, God had granted me a miracle.
