Even tho thanksgiving is a colonialist holiday, I’m still thankful! I’m grateful to everyone who has helped me settle into motherhood. Discovering how limitless love can be and accepting my strength has been a terrifying experience. Unlike my love, my strength is not limitless, but this experience has unearthed large reservoirs. It’s a balancing act to be soft and hard at the same time and I have no idea how mothers have been doing this for so many centuries! I am in awe of all those who do it better and more patiently than me and am so thankful for their example.
