“You Love someone so much it hurts.” I never fully grasped that saying before I became a Mom. But now… it is a feeling that radiates through my being every second of every day.
As I rock my son and he lay curled up in my arms with a full belly of milk, I hurt. I can still feel his little 6 pound body curled on my chest just a year and a half ago. That he will never be able to curl on me the same way he did… I hurt that today is gone. That yesterday is gone… That today, I didn’t get enough kisses, enough giggles… And that I don’t get a re-do.
It pains me to leave him. It pains me to see him become independent. I tear at the day I will be sending him off to school and he is no longer completely nurtured by me solely. I tear at the day I will dance at his wedding.
This love hurts. But it is oh so beautiful; something that can be so opposite yet coexist is unexplainable and indescribable.
Can you relate?
