Hold a Baby

In Shorthand by WendyLeave a Comment

There is a reason babies are born so little, so as to be small enough to be held:  if their body demonstrated the size of their soul, the weight of who they are—who they are to become—would overwhelm and crush the young mother who is just beginning her own transformation.

What reverence; what a gift to hold a god in embryo.

Your mother held you once, too.
