So many congratulations to #34 Kimberly of Sperk*!
We can’t wait to see your fabulous Kimberly Muro Design!
Thank you all for linking up, Alison and I truly loved
every single memory that you captured!
See you next month, June 18th-22nd!
The lights dim.
Familiar strains fill the auditorium from worn, speckled carpet to high, open ceiling.
They tap onto the stage united by a year’s worth of well practiced steps.
I straighten in my chair whispering, “Here she comes,” in Brody’s ear as I slide him into my lap and wrap my arms around his threeness.
Through the swirl of glitter and sequins and sparkle and more glitter, I’m glued to my girl’s shine.
As the audience quiets and breathes them in, I cheer for her.
My girlfriend does the same and even from here, I see our girls’ cheeks raise.
They know the loudest applause is just for them.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
This happens each time one of them takes the stage. The straightening and the whispering and the cheering and that stunning cheek-raising.
They move and step and swish and turn, and I, fill to the brim.
I’m happy for their beginnings and sad for their endings.
And know with every fiber of my Mothering Heart, that these moments are their’s, and my role as the loudest (and most obnoxious) cheerleader in their audience, is etched just the way it should be.
That’s really what this Mothering Gig is all about, isn’t it? Finding our way to a spot at their sides.
Alison and I are thrilled that Memories Captured is here again!
We absolutely can’t wait to see what Memories you’ve Captured this month!
We’re also so very excited to partner with the fabulous, and generous, Kimberly Muro Designs this month! One lucky linker will win a blog redesign worth $245!
The linky will be open May 14-18, the badge is in my sidebar, and you can find out more about Memories Captured here.
With that, let the linking and swooning begin!
