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.

 

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.
