A BABY BLESSING
What a beautiful night. We gathered during the peak of a glowing sunset at a dock house on the backside of the island. We ate and laughed, and each of my friends and sisters brought flowers, quotes, poems, and blessings for me and my baby, both celebrating my rite of passage into motherhood and welcoming my baby into his new world. Uplifting, strengthening, emotional, and just so so sweet. I am so grateful for these dear people in my life.
“She is a friend of mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order. It’s good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind.” ~Toni Morrison, Beloved
