A new season of life.
The world is bursting forth in color and song.
Inside my heart is bursting.
Last spring we were mourning.
I trudged through, going through the motions, of a new season not feeling the energy, the renewal of it.
This season we rejoice.
We stare at baby legs chubby and round, kicking the air, beating into our hearts.
We relish in the change of the season, not just of the world around us but in us.
We have entered a new season of life. We are back to the baby stage. Midnight feedings, early morning cuddles. Warm breathe on your neck as she sleeps on your chest.
I almost, for a second mourned the season we had lost. Two mobile, active, verbal children. No more naps, no more schedules. The ability to take off and go without a bag or a plan.
It only lasted a second.
One look into those big beautiful (magical) eyes and it was all erased. I remembered what true mourning was, and true love.
My heart swelled and my eyes brimmed with tears, it’s a new season.
A new season indeed.
