Becoming a Mother

Becoming a Mother

My body is trying to prepare me by sending up warning flares… a migraine when I’ve sat at the computer too long, a stiff immobile back when I’m too active, and constant begging to sleep, eat, and rest.

This forced slowing means I’ve spent more and more time in reflection. Journaling and crafting as my thoughts stitch themselves together. Each little x of thread or loop of yarn is reshaping my sense of self.
