All You Need


Love ...These four little souls walking around in my life are like little pieces of my heart spit out to form a ball of tangled arms and legs and sweaty heads not fully comprehending the extent to which they make my life what it is. Love was something I never fully understood till I became a mom and all the fairy tale lust and desire and romantic love that I thought could sustain me was nothing like the bulldozer of emotions that were piled on top of my heart the day I found out I was going to be a mom. This kind of love is scary and lovely and frustrating and rewarding. It is the thought that they need me unlike any other person on this planet needs me, not just to feed them and clothe them but to give them love. There is nothing I want more In this world than to see them grow up, to be happy to be healthy, to love and be loved because there is absolutely nothing like it.
