It's difficult to believe that I've already been a mother for a little over 18 months. Where has the time gone? They say time flies when you're having fun . . . Maybe that's why the time seems to be slipping through my fingers like sand . . . If I've realized one thing during these 18 months, it is that there is truly no comprehension of the enormity of love until one is a mother. I sometimes think about how much I love my child, and am overcome by the realization that my parents loved me "this much". And, realizing that, I am awe struck. Oh, to be loved that much. And as I look at my child with that burst of love in my chest, threatening to choke me with it's intensity, I wonder, do my parents still feel that when they look at me . . . even now? And perhaps it'll take me this lifelong journey to realize the intensity of a parent's love never fades . . . And by then, perhaps my child(ren) will be contemplating these same feelings . . . May this love never fade, but only grow with each generation of loving!
Now, back to the source of my contemplations . . . I could go on and on about my amazing child, but most of you have followed me long enough that it probably isn't necessary. Instead I'll leave you with a then and now pic, and a now video . . . Enjoy!
