“I always dreamed of becoming a mother. When I became pregnant with Lucas I knew life was truly beginning for me. Motherhood, this incredible new chapter, has brought me love – so much love – and a responsibility unlike anything I have ever experienced. To love someone more than you love yourself, well as you can imagine, is a daunting task. It is a beautiful kind of exhaustion. But with the worry comes the sweet joy of watching this little being who belongs to me (I still look at him at times and think “wow. I can’t believe he’s mine!”) grow and flourish. Motherhood is such a gift and it is a blessing to have been chosen to be Lucas’s mama.”
My sweet Lucas Leon,
Thank you so much to Nicole for sharing! You can read more from Nicole on her blog.
Another installment in this special series next week! But tomorrow, I have a sentimental post– this weekend marks an important milestone around these parts. Until then….
