7 years ago…

…Tomorrow at 10. 

I became a mother.

An 18 month old ball of energy was handed to me. 

I dressed him in a snowsuit and boots that were 3 sizes too big (but it slowed him down). 

He wriggled and fussed and refused a bottle as he gazed wide eyed out the car windows as we rushed down the road.

Until we got to our next stop – where we picked up a 9 month old cuddle bug…

…and brought them to the airport for the ride home.

Tomorrow at 10…

7 years ago.

…I became whole.

All I had accomplished – had been proud of –

…before …paled in comparison.

7 years ago…

Tomorrow at 10…

I am amazed.
