early morning thoughts

I sit on the couch and feed her
and my focus is only on her sweet lips.

Everything else in the house is quiet for once
and so I try to take the time to soak it all in.

Things have changed here in this house
but mostly all for the best.

Shocked still that I have two little people
who can call me mom.

She stirs and my eyes find their way to the window
to watch the leaves fall.

It is now my favorite season
and I am happy to be home.

Both children are up now
and I am reminded that I am the luckiest mom of all.

You had me tearing up at the 2nd line!

Are you taking any videos right now? DO IT. I wish I'd taken more.
