As you lay asleep next to me, your tiny body curled up against mine, I can’t help but marvel how beautiful you are. My heart warms up. I swell with adoration as I realize you are my creation. I smile knowing that nothing can change the fact that you belong to me, that I am your mother, that you and I are intricately linked, that you and I share a language of love, fondness, respect and admiration only decipherable to us.
I always knew motherhood would be special. What I didn't know was how awe stricken I will be with it.
