It feels a bit reckless, posting here, for the first time in over a year. I’ve just read all the posts and truly appreciate all my gathered thoughts, the lovely love notes to my babe. What a treasure, which is what I meant them to be, of course.
Obviously a lot has changed since then, and why shouldn’t it, as so many days have passed.
In life, I have the most amazing son. He’s not yet one…but talk about a fast year. I still have the most amazing daughter, who’s more than four now. And the most amazing husband, still on this grand adventure called Life, and Parenting, with me.
I feel somewhat reserved about sharing here, I suppose I always have. But I’ve been writing poems and just adoring it, just so grateful for this gift that alights on my pillow as often as it does. The poems have become a sort of journal for me, capturing moments of our lives. They are raw and unedited, truly moments in time that I pen in the dim light through squinted eyes, shortly before passing out at night. I continue to feel a need to share them, so I am following that tug, right back to Love Notes Mama.
My hopes for this blog, in addition to me having enough time to write, are: to be a place of openness and pleasure, to be an outlet for sharing and receiving, to be a grateful witness to precious days with our precious ones.
Here is tonight’s poem, which I share as my first love note of the year….
