Having Ophelia I have felt myself become so grounded, aware, and thankful.
Grounded because I don’t find myself taking my safety for granted anymore. Not feeling quite as invincible as I once did. I realize how cliché that may sound, but I say it with a realization of value.
I’ve been made aware of how much of a toll we take on our body every day. Also how much we seem to ignore how capable it can be. The season of pregnancy made me realize that, but I have been reminded every day since as well.
Thankful because I don’t think I have had so many consecutive happy days until Lia was born. No matter what the day consists of.. it may be stressful, or plain ol’ monotonous but having the opportunity to hold and nurture this sweet soul has made EVERY day such a joy.
