There is so much I want to say.. But it seems no matter how much I search, there is no phrase that quite explains how blessed I feel to be experiencing the immense beauty of life as it is right in this moment. To be a family, so full of love and wonder, after all that we have shared, through the darkness and the storm clouds, the sweetest rainbow is now shining such joy in our lives. And as Tallow fills our world with love, we know her big brother Cohen will always be watching over her and guiding her journey from above.
These early weeks really are a whole new world, a surreal alternate reality with four seasons in each day. Sure the nights are long, sleep is precious, life is messy and we are wondering if we will ever eat a meal together again.. But oh my, it all seems so trivial and fleeting when compared to the remarkable gift of motherhood and the sheer joy of holding your child in your arms.
Thank you so much for sharing this journey with me.. especially over the past year and a half. Your support and kindness has so often helped me through the days when it all just seemed too much. Words of care and encouragement have enabled me to find my voice and rekindle my passion and with our little girl's arrival, each sweet message brought with it such love and happiness. I can't wait to share all your beautiful comments with Tallow one day. I am forever grateful for this amazing community.
