Leaving on a Jet Plane

In a few hours I will put more distance between my family & myself for more days than my heart is ready for.

The thought of this distance has created such strong physical reaction in my being. Before I became a mother I had no idea...

that love is so big

that love is so strong

that love is so consuming

that love is more than a word

that love is a physical reaction



{photos taken last week after the workday when we all came together}

I am counting my blessings that my job doesn't require that I travel from my family often. I just don't think my heart could take it.

Oh my goodness, those photos are fabulous, and your boys are beautiful. That whole heart bursting thing doesn't go away ... it gets more intense with time. Hold on tight, it's the ride of your life :)

You'll do fine! I love the picture of you and baby Owen.

I know exactly where you are coming from Monica!! I never understood love until I had my boys. Travel safely, and you will be home in the presence of your family before you know it!
