To celebrate my feature over at HeyMama I thought I would share a little something I wrote last year. One of my favorite quotes. And a little something about the year of 2016 for us.
“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did – that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love, or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that – a parent’s heart was bared, beating forever outside its chest.” (-Debra Ginsberg) I often have these deep pains in my heart as I watch my babies grow. Witnessing their first moments. Experiencing new discoveries. Adventuring along beside them. When I step back and really soak it in, that is when it really hits. My heart drops and I can feel shivers. Want an intense form of love.
