there are moments you remember as a mother. more than you can possibly count. but there are some that stand out. you can feel it forever. any reminder of it makes you draw in your breath and pause. THIS morsel, THIS painting does that for me. THIS is how i feel.
the moment you are safety in a storm, respite in chaos, time-out in exhaustion. the moment of sheer relief, absolute validation, exquisite shared joy or devastating shared aching grief. the moment of connected silence, words with no air. an embrace that is forever.
all. fiercely tender.
