 fruit and nut chocolates


When you started growing inside me I felt a sense of apprehension like nothing I had ever known.

Weeks later I felt a sickness like nothing I had ever known.

When I gave birth to you I felt a pain like nothing I had ever known.

When I first held you I felt a love like nothing I had ever known.

When I took you home I felt sleep deprivation like nothing I had ever known.

During those weeks I felt the craziness of hormones like nothing I had ever known.

As I tried to feed you I felt frustration and hopelessness like nothing I had ever known.

In those first few months I felt clueless like nothing I had ever known.

Then you smiled and I felt my heart burst like nothing I had ever known.

You kissed me and I felt warmth like nothing I had ever known.

You had your first illness and I felt my heart break like nothing I had ever known.

You took your first steps and said your first words and I felt pride like nothing I had ever known.

You touched your baby Brother and held your baby Sister and I felt a sense of everything being perfect like nothing I had ever known.

You packed your bag and headed to school and I felt excitement, emptiness and a sense of worry like nothing I had ever known.

You stand before me now. So grown up. So beautiful. I feel all of these things at once; mothering you is like nothing I had ever known. Thank you for all that you have given to me.
