Children

In the time my children have graced my life, I have gone from wanderer to grounded...

In the time my children could speak, I have become that smile to their favorite word...

In all the time my children have been able to move, I have been moving myself harder...

In the wonderful time my children could laugh, I have felt lightened of burdens for those noises...

I relish the idea of my children growing... I love the idea of them learning... I hurt when they hurt... and I am always on balance between feeling horrible to proud in a single moment...

To be a mother and see those small bodies grow to be as tall as I am, to know they will grow taller... to hear their voices begin and change... their minds to develop and expand and understand...

To be THEIR mother.. that is the blessing I call life.
