Motherhood v the world


I am not deaf to his call,
his smile, his neediness
I am not confused by the next step
he and I will take

His grip on my leg
so constant, so familiar
easing my days,
eclipsing the world outside.

  3. I just wanted to thank you again for your wonderful blog (and your e-mail to me today!). After reading your blog this week, I took some time to "smell the roses" and remember the joy in motherhood. It prompted this blog post: http://beckyscreativespace.blogspot.com/2011/03/joy-in-my-purpose.html

    Thank you for your wonderful example!
