of course motherhood is a journey of love, but what i didn't expect was how it continually forces me to push, expand, and reveal myself in ways i couldn't imagine. each day is a new beginning along an unchartered path - but that path is lined with love, with the questions of my curious little kai, with the warmth of his generosity, with the tunes of his little songs, the silliness of his funny voices, with the wonder of how he explores his world.
little one...may you always know that your presence in our lives is a gift. that you melt my heart with the way you approach the world. may you always remember that no matter what life holds for you, if your path is lined with love, you will be able to face anything.
i was thinking last night that i need to come clean a bit..this blog space is one where i can choose the snapshot of my life, refocus my thoughts on those i hope to keep close -- but it is just that 'a selected snapshot of my world'. i am able to leave out the messy, mundane, and chaotic moments. although i do try to be real here - but then again don't want to bore (or disgust) you with our trials into potty training, dwell on a list of my insecurities, or always burden you with my fears and worries - but i'd rather let you in on those 'in between moments' because those are the ones i feel are often overlooked but yet are so filled with meaning and possibility. so for this thursday, i hope that you are able to unfold the magic that bubbles just under the surface in those moments in your own world. and here is a bit of musical inspiration for your journey.
