Motherhood

This evening, I experienced a heightened sense of awareness.  It wasn't a blissful yoga state or a transcendent experience as I sat gazing at the sunset.  Tonight, I was highly aware of my body aging, even through the haze and mush that was my brain.   The thing about motherhood is that it's exciting, beautiful, eye opening and full of the greatest love you'll ever know.  It will also make you age before your very eyes.  Today was filled with the usual Sunday stuff, leftover cookies for breakfast, coloring, runny noses, playing with cars, snack, play-doh mess fest, lunch, children… Read More >>

Let me just say, trying to keep a secret, plan and organize a huge party for the most helpful person in your life who couldn't help with it was tough!
