When we are placed in front of the mirror and asked to see ourselves fully, sometimes we only see bits and pieces.

I witnessed a Birth today. Not just a metaphorical birth, but the actual birth of a child – my niece. My sister has traveled into the labor realm three separate times before today to retrieve her children, and each birth has been drastically different. I cannot speak for her experiences. I can only speak from […]
