First Love

I had the privilege of spending this week with a new soul to this world, Josey Estelle. Josey’s mama has dark circles under her eyes; she wears over-sized shirts stained with baby spit-up and pee; she spends the greater part of her day between a nursing chair, propped up with pillows, and an exercise ball, softly bouncing and cooing to her little girl. She has never looked more beautiful or more radiant.

She is falling in love.

To witness this was to glimpse a sliver of the divine. She will remember these days deeply and well.
