Notice what you are up to:
Resisting the intense
of caring for another human being.
physical contraction of co-sleeping, carrying, breast-feeding
shoulders rolled forward, tight neck, sore back,
stillness filtered as stagnation
actually Grace, Mystery
Instead: A Reckoning with what’s greater than yourself
while also perfectly accepting limitations.
All of this a huge gesture of love, a relaxation into the grace of giving, a loosening of self into service…
