a different kind of love

this little boy made me a mama almost nine months ago.

my life has changed so much since then and in only the best ways.

just after he was born and everyone was fussing with him, my own mama came over to me with the biggest smile on her face and said “it’s like a completely different kind of love, isn’t it?”

it was such a beautiful moment because i knew exactly what she meant, but also because i got to see a glimpse of my own mother, as a 23-year-old woman, experiencing that feeling for the first time in her life. i got to watch her re-live one of the most moving experiences she’s had.

this weekend i will celebrate being a mama, and i will celebrate my mama with a kinship we’ve never had before. i know now. and i appreciate her so much more.

so to all the mamas, new and not-so-new. to the soon-to-be-mamas who don’t quite know of the love i’m referring to:

happy mother’s day. you mean so much to someone.
