I am always a very cheerful person, at least I literally always think the best of things and look at the bright side of any situation, but then again I am human, and for one reason or another I do get upset, frustrated, or angry. Today was one of those days.... where I was just not feeling it. But then I found this little big eyes looking up at me with such admiration, love and amazement that in a matter of seconds everything clicked again in in its perfect place. And how could it not be with this look:
and so with Ari looking at me, I remembered Ale´s look after winning her gymnastics medals last week. How she searched for me across the whole floor and among all these excited parents just to lock eyes with me and share all she was feeling !! To Ale, right there in that moment I was her lighthouse!
and then I looked at this little flower that Emi gave me the day before... and I remembered how she came into my room breathless because all that mattered after finding this flower was to give it to me.
So after starting the day in not so very high spirits, just a simple look from my baby made me remember I am a hero, a healer, a teacher, a translator, a coach... I am courageous, I am brave, I get angry, I get upset because I am also real. I am the anchor in the rough sea, and the lighthouse of their journey.... I am a mother, and to this three human beings I am the world!
