Singing this song today and remembering my babywearing days.
Remembering my babies little.
Remembering wanting to show them the world – full of wonder, full of imagination.
Days full of heart-full love…
It’s not that the love is gone, but the wonder and imagination….I don’t look at the world the same way for them.
I look at the world through much more cautious eyes, not trusting the world to be kind, be fair.
My children know I am here.
That I will fight to protect them.
That I will love them, read to them, watch over them.
But… I’ve forgotten to show them wonder and imagination. Not just in what they create with their hands, but in this big beautiful world around us.
Today I choose love.
