Write 31 Days – Day 6: Possible

My Wildflower.jpg

Just barely squeezing in day 6, here’s why I’m finding the time to write for 5 minutes a day.



Before I was pregnant with my daughter I wondered if it would be possible to love another child as much as I loved my son. I couldn’t imagine it. My Sunshine was my world. From the moment he arrived, he required every bit of me and my attention. We were inseparable. I couldn’t fathom how I would love anyone as much as I loved him and I had no idea how I would split myself and my time with another baby.

Then my daughter arrived, My Wildflower. I loved her fiercely, instantly. She was just so sweet and perfect. From her first breath I forgot life before her and knew then that I did not have to make room in my heart for her. She opened up the part of me that has always loved her; before I knew her my heart has held a place for her.

We have had challenges along the way to becoming a family of four. We have had to adjust life considerably. But I have never questioned my love for her. It is so entirely different yet just as strong. I have never wondered what life would be like without her, because like my son, she has always been a part of our family. The only thing I wonder now is if another is possible.
