For the Mother of a One-Year-Old

Updated: Feb 10

A year ago

everything changed


Into a beautiful, brutal swirl of

exhaustion

diapers

first words

sweet moments...

as you knew it would

BUT YOU COULD NOT KNOW

How your BODY

would be

BROKEN

by insane demands

and yet

BLESSED

by extraordinary miracles

How your HEART

would be

HUMBLED

by deep insecurities

and yet

HEALED

by gentle Love

How your SPIRIT

would be

SHAKEN

by endless worries

and yet

STRENGTHENED

by rising courage

A year ago

your beautiful child

was born


But more importantly

your child's beautiful

MOTHER

was born

For every moment

you've questioned yourself

May you take pride

in how much you've learned.

For every time

you've cried

May your heart break

open with

JOY

For every time

you gaze at your child

in amazement

May you pour

that same

ADORATION

over your own

Brave and Beautiful

SELF

May this day of

CELEBRATION

open your eyes

to the thousands

upon thousands

of ways

you have

BLESSED THE WORLD

Through the

ancient

powerful

sacred

impossible

grace-filled

glorious

transformation

into a

MOTHER
