A Tender Picture

This is such a sweet picture of my mom. I was looking through the pictures of Oak being born and this one brought tears to my eyes. I didn't even know she was there until after Oak was born(my mom). She had gone home to shower made it home and had a feeling to come right back. She watched Oak be born but kind of behind a curtain. I said I was so sorry because I thought she had missed it all but she said I was in the perfect spot just where I needed to be. She explained it just the way I can imagine it will be when and if I get to watch my daughter have a baby. Never wanting them to feel pain or heart ache or sorrow. It's a pain that you can't understand until you have been through it and it's a pain you can't take away or help that person stop feeling until it's done. She said all I wanted to do was to take that pain away from you and I couldn't. She just cried... I love you mom this picture is so tender because you can see the love and joy in her face.
