Moments

13 Nov

Have you ever realized with sudden intensity that the rhythm of your everyday is on the verge of changing? A round belly that’s becoming less so.  Chubby feet that are lengthening out.  Arm creases that are only visible as a shadow.  I had one of those moments this weekend.  

 

Until the weekend came to a close with the whispering sweetness of lullabies in the darkness and a tiny hand that searched until it melted into mine.  And it was me who was comforted.  She’s still so little.  So little.

    I remember that day, when I first realized that my baby was not such a baby anymore. But in my heart, I’ve never gotten past the touch of that little hand, the scent of that soft baby hair after a bath, that little voice. They will be with me always, as will hers be with you. Such is the blessing of mothers, never to forget, always to be surrounded by, immersed in, the essence of a child.
