There’s an urgency to soak up these moments with our children. There’s a longing to bottle up every ounce of these memories & keep them tucked safely in our hearts. There is beauty & pain that runs deep in a mama’s heart. An ache of mixed emotions that we try our best to sort through. Excitement for their future, but the dread of them growing up. Longing for a full nights sleep, but missing the midnight rocking chair moments. Wanting them to succeed, but fearing they will no longer need you. A mother’s heart is constantly rocked back & forth between the waves of changing emotions. A never-ending battle within us. But that is the proof of our love.
