I seem to be a bit lost with Wednesday Words this week.
I missed last week so have made it down here with just over two hours to go. Go me - Time management skills down packed.
If i've understood correctly and the topic is 'How we love" then here goes...
It seems like a topic that should roll down from my mind and through my fingertips with such great ease. There are so many ways. The post could go on and on.
We all know that we all love in different ways, it comes in many forms.
I remember the first time I held my JJ. I still can't describe it. I can't find the words to put on 'paper' that captures that feeling. It's like being hit by what I now know is pure unconditional love - an absolute explosion.
I didn't realise it straight away. In fact, it took about 6 weeks. When I look back now at those first 6 weeks I just felt like I was on auto pilot. Feed, change, bath, sleep and keep him safe. Keep him safe, keep him safe. Then bang - I knew it, I kept him safe because I loved him. NOthing or no one could come in between that or break it down. This new found love was hands down the best thing i'd ever felt.
Here is my song for this weeks Wednesday Words. I distinctly remember my mother saying that one day when I had my own child I'd understand the meaning. Is hows she loved me, how I love Jonathan and how Jonathan will one day love his child.
