we’ve got one on our hands and we couldn’t be more proud.
nor could he.
this time last year. . . in the meadow with our girl.
knowing the days were drawing to a close; hoping they would last forever.
today i celebrate mothering a beloved furry baby no longer physically present, another who is, an adorable boy, and a husband.
i also celebrate all of the amazing women friends in my life – mothers of furry babies, mothers of babies, mothers of all who know them – their “motherhood” credentials vary, but mothers they all are.
strong, resilient, determined, inspiring. did i mention strong? wow! collectively, women are absolutely astonishingly resolute. steeled by grief, loss, longing, love – my women friends amaze me.
thank you, loves, for being such inspiration.
for nurturing so well.
be being you.
happy mother’s day.
we’re so over winter, aren’t you?
this little girl just wants to snuggle in and keep warm, and dream of chasing birds in the glorious warm sun.
the birds are chirping all day long, the days are longer, and the hope in our hearts of brighter days ahead grows ever stronger.
