This is my first Mother's Day and it does give me pause to reflect on this past year.
I'm someone's mother.
Winter has changed my life so completely I feel as though her first breath was my own.
When my father said to my last week, 'I do for you what I cannot even do for myself' his statement of strength pulsed my own inner well. I know this to be true.
I've found strength, a voice and clarity in matters that I previously would have backed down from or shown little boundary for.
I spring out of bed every morning with the lightest step I've ever known and each day I'm away from her I work with an increased no nonsense efficiency, my little girl is waiting on me.
My first true love,
The little girl who arrived and brought heaven with her.
I walk through this brave new world with you.
May you see me and know love.
Happy Mother's Day
