Body

At the moment of the occurrence of my immaculate conception…
I was able to boast as having my smallest human body.
At that very first moment of my existence…
I had the most diminutive physical presence of my entire life.
At that very first nanosecond…
I was a complete human being.
I already had a soul…
I had a beautiful mind…
And also… I had a fabulous body!

Right from that very shining start…
I possessed an indivisible human life.
And… against all odds…
My courageous gorgeous mother defended me…
Fed me…
Protected me…
Prayed for me…
Sang for me…
Danced with me…
Kept giving me the rest of my human life…
Making me… cell by cell …
Adorning me with superb skills…
Allowing me to get more complete and stronger, and stronger, and stronger.

Very soon after my immaculate conception…
I had a heart…
A throbbing heart… when I was 22 days old.
At that tender age…
And a few days beyond…
I began to learn how to listen…
How to caress and kiss my MOM…
Tenderly…
Softly…

With total love…
Without malice…
Puppy love…
From MAMA’s boy…
I call IT… with the greatest joy.

I was becoming kind of fast… my MOM’s masterpiece.
I was not BLIND.
I was not DEAF.
I was not MUTE.
I was not out of TOUCH.
I could SMELL everything!
Even a rat.
I was in the process of getting the very best human senses…
I did not even stutter.

According to my cherished divinations…
Within the first nanosecond…
I had life, soul, and mind.
It was magical!
At 7 weeks I began to control my sense of touch.
At 8 weeks my hearing perceptions began.
At 12 weeks my taste and smell began.
Around 33 weeks my sight began to show the best of me.
It was a lot of fun to contemplate my MOM create her masterpiece: ME.

To all the human MOMS of the world:
CONGRATULATIONS!

Without a doubt… YOU are the very best of us!

If anyone doesn’t believe what I say…
Try to look for my best photograph…
And see this… gorgeous… body!

I…
Am: Jairo Nemocon.+
