Happy Mother's Day!

There is no one who comes here that does not know this is a true map of the world, with YOU there in the center, making HOME for us all.

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body.
Or how special it could feel
to hold a sleeping child.
I didn't understand the bond
that tethered our souls together.
Or that someone so small
could make me feel so significant and alive.

I love these pics.

Holding a sleeping child was always one of my favorite memories from when my kids were younger . . . except for when the child feel asleep on the way to Walmart and I had to walk around the store lugging the child over my shoulder while she continued to slumber. Now that's what I called tired. :)

This is beautiful, the pictures and the words.

When I had my first child, I remember the overwhelming feeling of loving him so fiercely, yet if I died on the spot, he was too young to have a memory of it. That it would take years to have him really know the extent of my love. At 12 years, I think he only has an inkling.

Tear. What a freaking emotional day, but amazing and full of that wonderful baby smell I'm starting to get high on!

Hope yours was awesome!
