~Nearly 13 years ago, the first days of her life, my first days as a mother.
~A few weeks before she was born. We had just moved into a little A-frame in the forest.
(We are not nearly as young as you might be thinking we look...) (25 and 27...)
~ See, my yellow-y gold flowery vintage-y sheet! I said before that it is always out at homebirth time...
~And today... (No one was sure if the camera was working...)
~ Visiting an old friend/neighbor, right next door to where our first child was born...)
Seriously absolutely definitely the best thing that ever happened to me. Becoming a mother. It was like I instantly felt completely me. Life was just exactly as it was supposed to be. And now I am the mother of three girls. Three girls!!! (Kinda makes me wonder how I could have thought this baby was going to be a boy. Because three girls, it was something I always seemed to know. I'm not saying only three girls, but yes, definitely, three girls.)
I think this work of creating families and raising children is oh so very important. I am so incredibly grateful to be a mother to these children. And I am honored to share friendship with so many wonderful mothers.
Wishing you all a happy mothering heart full of peace.
With love, Renee
