Take a breather. Enjoy a treat. Grab extra snuggles. Kiss harder than you normally would.
And with awe - the utmost of it - stare at your beautiful children, and just seep them in.
This is who makes me a Mother:
I love their laughter. Their innocence. Their complete wonder with this world. I love their energy. Their eagerness. And their quest for discovery.
And this is my own Mother:
|My Mom, Aunt, and Cousin|
She has taught me how to be a mother; how to be part of a family. How to trust that instinct that just doesn't translate into words. She has taught me to be confident in my decisions and to love fully.
Today I finished my infusion at the hospital. I wore my beautiful Mother's day present from Jack (with explanation for those who gave me that look and thought I was legitimately nuts).
A little weary, a little tired. But done for now.
