I created this one years ago, as part of my greeting card range Soul Story Messages.

At the time, I had an inkling of what it really meant. I knew the words were true. I had an idea of what it would be like. But it was still, for me, in the Land of Dreaming.

Finding it again today, it brought bright, quick, shining tears to my eyes.

I really KNOW what it means now.

Right down, deep in my bones.

I know, seared like Hailey’s Comet into the soul of all mamas:

the moment we first held them.

That first breath, those wide open eyes, and all the moments and miracles that tumble after.

We are bigger from it, and better for it.

We crack open to become the container for love that knows no bounds.

Love, love, love,
