Gratitude.

I remember all the years I wanted a baby.

Right now I have two little babies cuddled to me in a wrap. Baby sleep breathing is assailing all my senses from every direction. Milky breath, soft puffs of air against my skin, beautiful little wonders curled in such trust against me.

All those years of waiting were worth this one moment.

    I can’t believe I’m the only commenter. Lovely, lovely words. They draw me in like a whisper, make me want to listen more closely to my own motherhood. What a beautiful post.
