Mother To Mother

I knew what she was feeling, it was a mother to mother moment. She didn't have to say anything to me, I understood her. Her heart was racing and her voice was shaky. Her tears spoke to me.

When I first met Becca, Jocelyn and Elias were babies. We've know each other for a short time, but we have been through a lot together. I offered to take pictures of Jocelyn's first day of school, not knowing that I would feel so present with her heart and emotions.

Little ones like Jocelyn and Elias have jumped high hurtles and they will swim in deep waters. Their accomplishments will not come easy, but they will take time, diligence, and passion. And with each milestone our hearts will race, our voices will shake, and our tears will come.

They are little but they are living big.
