New Perspective

by Dionicia Valencia

This most recent time I looked down at myself, I was struck suddenly with pride. This had never happened before, you see; the angle was the same but the perspective was new. The scars on my stomach had taken on a pattern that looked very much like twisted roots. Roots? When my daughter was growing inside me, she was branding me from the inside out. Now I look down and see my scars winding and reaching like the roots of a tree and I know that she has branded me "Life- Giver."

This is beautiful... Even more so because I know it came from your heart...
