Motherhood is…A Safe Place

The look of recognition and relief when your child spots you in a crowded room. The way they cling tightly to your hand while crossing the street or squeeze tight to your leg when surrounded by the unknown. The way they run to you for comfort when they get hurt. When he crawls into your bed in the middle of the night because he had a bad dream and snuggles in close. When he crawls in your lap because emotions can be big and hard to handle so he’s looking for comfort.

One of my favorite parts of motherhood is being a safe place for my children.
