Valentine’s day never meant much to me in its traditional sense. But if it is a day to celebrate any form of LOVE, I got to celebrate my newest form. The one I share with my daughter dearest. Afterall I met her after quite a journey. The sense of pride to be a mom (AMMA) is as unique as the bond every mother shares with her child.
I know love at first sight. But, she was my love before first sight. Each time I felt her from inside, it was incredible and her kicks were even more addictive. And, the moment I held her in my arms, it felt like I was swimming in the stream of oxytocin feeling the euphoria of love. “Is this even true?” – I almost asked myself. “Yes it is true Amma” – her eyes almost replied.
I have been blessed to experience so many kinds of love through various relations but there is some magic in the deep, breathtaking new love that I have been experiencing since my little girl was born. It is the love that makes me strong, a fighter and lets me discover my new self. The desire to be the best mom for my baby girl wants me to be the better version of myself every day. As I read somewhere, “A mother gives birth to a child but a child gives the mother a new life”. Awaiting to see the world through your eyes.
Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.
Dear daughter – You are the love I never knew I needed. Thank you, my cutest valentine. I can’t wait for the day you stretch your arms super wide and say ” I lovee you thiiissss much Amma”. Awaiting to explore the world through your eyes.
