“Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood – finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.” – Jodi Picoult, Perfect Match
Today is Mother’s Day. I woke up to my gorgeous little girl calling me from the kitchen. She “snuck” downstairs to make me breakfast and wanted to make sure that I slept in. The proud look on her face was the best Mother’s Day gift ever!
My girl is the best teacher ever, and every day I continue to learn more and more about life from her So, in honor of my daughter on Mother’s Day, I’m going to repost what I wrote last year called: What I’ve Learned on Mother’s Day. Enjoy!
