It’s amazing how much power a tiny pair of electric orange swim trunks can hold over a person.
Yesterday afternoon I was enjoying a little R&R, people watching from the balcony of our hotel room while our 2-year-old slept.
One quick glimpse was all it took. Squinting to bring two little specks below me into focus, a pair of orange trunks gave me all the information I needed.
Heart exploding, I started waving my face off, grinning ear to ear, trying to capture their attention.
It was my husband and four-year-old, out for an afternoon stroll along the beach.
It’s a funny feeling to be completely filled with joy and love in an instant, but if you’re a mother and you’re reading this, you know.
Motherhood is complex and multifaceted.
But most of all, it’s love.
The kind of love that can burst your heart in one quick glance.
It’s difficult to explain and even harder to capture, but when you feel it, you just know.
So Happy Mother’s Day my fellow mommas.
Your love makes the world go round.
