To fall in love with a stranger;
After we realize they are growing in us
It is to let go of self;
Allowing our little ones to take over our bodies
It is being selfless;
Accepting pain that comes with carrying and delivering our babies
It is surrender;
Of a life of comfort to being present whenever and wherever for our babies
It is becoming strong;
For we know they need us to
It is learning to get up when we fall;
Knowing it is what we would want them to do
A soft cushion
A cause of smiles
A soft tissue for tears
A waiting hug
It is giving
Motherhood is love that makes
One fluffy cloud.

I wonder if you, as I did, can recognize some of the energy of your children from the time in the womb? My daughter used to dance up a storm when I played music, and now she is a musician!
Such a lovely post! Thank you for sharing your thoughts! 😊

I found this so beautiful that I immediately send it to my sister in law who is in her third trimester ❤️
Awwww. Thank-you for enjoying this piece. It was written from a mother’s heart and I hope your sister in-law enjoys it as much as I enjoyed writing it. 💞
What a beautiful piece. My baby turned one this week, and my husband thought I was exceptionally excited. I agree, and it was for a good thing; men can never understand that feeling. I am glad about all that I have had to give up, and all that I will joyfully embrace, even as a new phase opens up to me.
Thank-you my dearest 💝. Happy belated birthday to your munchkin. Being a mother is beautiful and it’s absolutely okay to be excited for milestones. Hugs💝
