Life changes in an instant. The world looks different, and life is more precious. It was true for me too, the moment I became a mother. by Jennifer Andersen
No longer did I worry about matching dishes or scatter rugs. And work was done half-heartedly because my heart remained at home.
The moment I became a mother my body mattered not. Except to feed and comfort my child and wrap him in my arms.
My shirts were stained, my eyes blood red, my crazy hair unkempt. I did not think outside of him for the months that lay ahead.
It may seem like I have sacrificed more than what seems fair. But this singular most defining moment is one of life’s repairs .
Even though so often I feel so all alone, the moment I became I mother is the most important one I’ve known.
When I am tired and unavoidably feel so thanklessly forgotten, I will be grateful for nothing more in life than the moment I became a mother.
