my girl is having a baby.
it’s a time of great expansion for her and for me as her mom. my heart feels so big and full of love that i can’t even believe that it can fit inside my body at times.
there is not a single day that goes by when i don’t learn something new about being her mom. even now as a young adult, her presence and energy in my life brings new depth to my own.
everyone told me how much my world would change when i was carrying her…i listened to them all.
i just didn’t hear them.
how could i? how could i possibly know that birthing her would bring such a profound depth of love and blessings throughout my entire life?
even now, that fact surprises me and delights me and humbles me.
i never tire of its teachings…
the mysteries and rhythms of life,
wrapped in love.
