"The most surprising thing about being a mother is what it does to your  capacity to feel things. I thought that I was loving with all of my  heart before, but now that I have a child I’ve discovered a whole new  depth of love (for my baby, my husband, my parents). You also experience  fear and sorrow in greater depth too. As morbid as it sounds, the  hardest thing about being a mum is the sudden awareness of my and my  baby’s mortality." - Zoë Buckman via The Glow
Zoë read my mind here, and probably the mushy minds of most mamas out there. Motherhood, in other words, is somewhat of a superpower - with the birth of our babies, we are all at once born deeply intuited and deeply feeling beings. It’s a hard and deliriously warm feeling, one that’s with me often. And I wouldn’t change it for the world.

    Yeah, for me, not so much the husband and parents bit, but I feel this deep sorrow for the whole huge chunk of the world...
