Thoughts On Motherhood


This morning I was snuggling on the couch with my little Geoffrey bug. For some reason I got the idea to pull out our family photo/video sessions and watch them. I have one from 2009, and one from 2012. I adore them both. As I watched our first video,  I was in awe of the little voice of my Sophia, the unabashed calls for attention from Davis, and the innocence of my oldest. Of course Geo was only a few weeks old…the next video left me grateful for the evolution of our family…the relationships we have, the inside jokes, the personalities that have developed even truer. This is what family is, and I felt like I held it almost tangibly in my hand this morning.

Although I felt some sadness for how quickly my kids are growing, I felt excited for their futures too.As part of my summer photo challenge (which I’m failing miserably at, by the way), I took the following image. I love it because I feel like it perfectly depicts my little girl. She is full of life, and wants to be so many things when she grows up. And she could be anything…she’s good at everything she tries. Here she is in her ballet costume, rocking out at the piano (which she also plays).

I am grateful for the gift of motherhood. For the opportunity to experience these transcendent feelings of truth in growth, family, life, and love. These moments don’t come often…in fact, I find myself feeling the frustrations of motherhood too quickly most days.  But in unexpected times, those quiet breaths of truth fill my soul and give me the courage to move forward, and to start anew.
