The room was as still as a black and white
In and out.
My heartbeat joined the cadence of his breath as I began to think how precious his little soul was.
How lucky I am to be his mama? The title I have longed for since I was a little girl.
Being a mother has such a deeper meaning than I ever imagined. Motherhood means learning patience when it is the hardest, putting his needs before my own, and smiling wider than I ever thought possible.
The simplicity of breathing can melt away anxiety and stress if even for a second.
And just like that the black and white photo moves into vivid color and audio. That precious little boy is awake and hungry.
There is screaming and a mess to clean up. Diapers and dishes.
Real life. But this is my life.
The beauty I created and every so often I get the chance to stop, listen, and feel the peace that comes from that sweet soul that makes all of these real life things worth it.
Mamahood is beautiful.
When we get these moments to remind us what truly matters, take hold of
them. There is so much joy that can come if we only let it. You’ve got this mama!
