Simple Moments


Moist, Warm air, hugging this new body.
Warming and chilling at the same time.
Steam swirls around kissing the cold glass of the mirrors.
Fogging them, blocking, distorting the image

Much like lack of sleep and hormones have distorted my view of self.


The water beats down on my head.
Running down my face.
Mixing with and washing away the salty tears

The renewal of a mind, body and soul.

A simple shower, an important break for a new mom, that's my simple moment this weeek. Do you have a simple moment to share? Link up at Sarah's place.

Your post brings back such memories. I remember how amazing showers felt when I had a newborn.

I'm so glad you got a shower! It is instant renewal.

Showers are great as an escape from the kids for a couple minutes. Just a couple minutes of me time to recharge your batteries.

Sometimes I spend just a little too much time in my shower, just to have some peace! I read on twitter that you blogged one-handed...were you nursing that precious baby? I used to go on my computer sometimes when I was nursing my first. It seemed like she could nurse all day long!

Oh, a shower feels so good! It's hard to find that time as a new mom.
