On His Birthday

This day will always be to celebrate my sweet William, but it's also a reminder of the moment a year ago when my life changed forever.

I'm hesitant to say that motherhood defines me. I am many more things than a mother. But it is the most important, all-encompassing, rewarding role of my lifetime. My entire life's happiness is wrapped up in this child. He is my greatest joy, frustration, happiness and sorrow. When he smiles, I smile. When he hurts, I hurt.

My heart and soul are no longer my own. They now belong to him.

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before.
The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.”
