Day 21

I'm thankful to be a mom. Being a mom to me is many things - busy, fun, tiring, frustrating - but I think the best word for it is consuming. It just consumes my whole life, and brings more joy than anything else. As I held my sweet three month old baby today, I thought how amazing it is that she is here simply because of me, because of my body... she grew in my womb and continues to grow simply from breast milk. And she's just incredible! I can't even make a simple meal or grow a plant without messing something up, but I can make and grow a baby? What a gift motherhood is, I'm so grateful I am able to experience it.
