Motherhood

You know that feeling you have when you first fall in love with somebody? That head-over-heels, can't-get-enough-of-your-love-babe kind of feeling? Motherhood is like that. Only better. And stronger.

It's so full of love that 2 am feedings are just an excuse to hold her, and you miss them when she starts sleeping through the night.

It's finding strength you never knew you possessed in order to protect and care for this new being.

It's everything you've heard, but to a degree you've never understood.

It's soft breath in your ear, soft skin on your cheek, and a feeling of completeness with the weight of your sleeping baby in your arms.

It's peace.

Happy Mothers' Day.
