Hey there, it’s me.
Just turned thirty three!
My last trip around the sun
Gave me my whole world, my son.
The year that gave me my sweet boy
Was full of dread and full of joy.
I struggled a lot to not compare
As I practiced the art of trial and error.
The highest highs and the lowest lows
Came along with those ten little toes.
Lack of sleep, too much stress
Feeling like a total hot mess.
But I am nothing if not resilient
My next year is going to be brilliant!
I hope to do a lot more teaching
And in the Fall I will be reaching
Women who struggle to find their worth
And give themselves grace after giving birth.
Not just for moms but for anyone
Carrying shame that feels like a metric ton.
If you haven’t been told, it’s overdue.
You are enough and I am too.
