I stumbled on this photo today of when I was 7 mos pregnant with True and the beams of light connecting my heart to my belly give me chills and clarity all over again. Thank you Andrea for capturing this all those years ago. It delights the deepest part of my spirit, this photo.
I thought I’d share some recent capture of True and his shiny spirit…..
We put a swing in our new front yard. I’m thinking it’s gonna be in our lives a very long time. It was so sweet to witness True seeing it for the first time in our front yard, running straight for it with a wide smile. It’s the littlest things, no?
John recently took him to the kiddie ride park. When they got home True said (with squeals), “I tried something I’ve never done before. I rode the ROLLERCOASTER!!!!!’ Yeah, yeah, I was super brave, Mama.” Totally adore him. I love how our kids are our teachers. He teaches me to play, to be brave, to feel my emotions, and to try new things.
I cannot believe he was a newbie just three years ago. This time on earth really is the longest, shortest time. And motherhood made me a newbie too, in all the best (and sometimes hardest) ways. This is love. And it’s a journey of a lifetime.
