In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month, I’m sharing from our 100 Words Project every day.
A story from Tabitha:
The love of my life. My nursling. A chance to hold you close. Each day you wander further, exploring and understanding more than yesterday. You grow, but your roots are in my heart…always leading you back to me. I nourish your body, spirit, and mind in a single stroke. Giving you what no one else can, I feel blessed. A moment that is uniquely ours. Curled up close you play with my hair, my face. I try to lock this moment in my memory, infinitely precious. You give me meaning and I give you milk. I am the lucky one.
