Mother's Day blues



Being a new mom... the feeling is indescribable.

So many emotions all at the same time.

To love to hear him laugh, and see him smile...
 ... but feel my heart break when he cries.

 To ignore the sore feet, tired hands, or aching back...
 ... to lovingly tend to his that are much, much smaller.

To bring him outside, let him travel, and show him off to world...
 ... but at the same time want him home with us instead, safe and sound.

To want to give him anything and everything he will ever want or ask for...
 ... but to have the discipline not to spoil him.

To teach him what is good and right,
 ... and to punish him when he does something that is not.


To be so excited to see what he's like growing up...


and yet...

to wish that he could stay just like this, forever.
