That Spring

 Spring  2011

It wasn't that long ago when imagining spring was my salvation.  My birth story was recently published and it brings back so many memories of the first few months postpartum.  During the never-ending nights of infancy and days filled with the struggle of becoming a mother of two, I would fantasize about Spring.  I held on tightly to my dreams of warmer months when I might lie on a blanket in the grass with my babes looking up at the blue sky and blooms above. Today, as the tree in my backyard starts to open its blossoms and the bright sunshine relaxes my children in a moment of peace and quiet, I think of that Spring back then and how I had been longing for it.
