Her mother

Last night, I snuck into her room and listened to her breathe.

I haven’t done that in quite a while.

It’s hard to believe that almost an entire year has past since she came into our lives.

On the other hand, I can barely remember what life was like before she was here.

I can only glimpse the tiniest memories of who I was before I became her mother.

Today, this is the role that defines me. First and foremost, I am her mother.


  1. Motherhood really is all-consuming and changes us. Everyone says that, but it's so hard to understand until it happens to you.

  2. And what a wonderful way to be defined, at least I love it.

  3. Always and Forever!

    Beautiful posts this week. :)

  4. Beautiful. Such a lovely post.

  5. I loved this! It is wonderful to be a mommy!

  6. Funny how that happens. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
