I will be a tree September 29, 2009

“If you become a bird and fly away from me,” said his mother, “ I will be a tree that you come home to.” (from The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown)

I liked this book before I was a mother, but I didn’t really understand it. I thought I did, but how can you understand the kind of love that just sweeps over your life like a tidal wave until you are drowning in it? Now I know that I will always do what I can with what I have to be whatever he needs, forever.
