“I exist in two places; here and where you are.” -Margaret Atwood.
To me this is one of the best quotes to sum up parenthood. If you are a parent or a parent to be then this quote probably hits home. Once you become a parent so many things change. And one of the biggest changes: It’s not just ‘you’ anymore. There’s someone else that’s a little part of you, a big part of your heart and likely the entirety of your world.
My little one is my everything, whether we are together or apart. And though I don’t yet know the path of his stars, I do know that no matter where in the world his feet lead him, a part of me and my love will be with him.
Now maybe you don’t have a son or daughter. Well, that’s okay the quote still applies to you because you are someone’s son or daughter. You are (or were) someone’s little one. A mother’s love – whether it’s your’s, your mother’s, or your grandmother’s – that love is unceasing and matters not about the distance between her and her child.
