To My Daughters, My Greatest Teachers

I have learned more about myself and life in the past 4 years than I had ever imagined.

Zoe and Paige you are my greatest teachers.

You have taught me to finally love my body and appreciate the miracles that it is capable of.
You have taught me patience beyond anything I had thought possible.
You have taught me that love is not finite and keeps expanding.
You have taught me that I am a storyteller.
You have taught me what really makes me angry.
You have reminded me how to play.
You have brought me back outside and rekindled my love of nature.
You are teaching me how to live in the present moment.
Because of you, I've learned how to speak more honestly and openly.
I'm learning that whatever I want for you I have to want for myself first to make it happen.

I hope that I will be able to teach you half of what I've gained from the both of you.
