Born at home

I am pleased to introduce you to our new angel in the house. Motherhood is an odyssey I never imagined could be so complete or so profound, physically, mentally, spiritually. From the moment I learned I was pregnant (just about the same day that I stopped writing in this space!) everything changed utterly; I know that I am just beginning to understand the magnitude of these changes. Certain things just fell away as a new aspect of life came into focus.
At this point, I have no idea whether I will resume blogging with any regularity, but if I do, I am pretty certain that The Girl Who Cried Epiphany will have to admit that she has finally settled on a single epiphany and her name is Moira. Perhaps Epiphany’s Mama has been born?
And thanks to Carl for calling me back to this world so unexpectedly. He tagged me in a meme, “The Bible in Five Statements.” Both because mommy duty calls and because my relationship with the Bible has shifted over the last year and I am not sure what form my response to his call might yet take. Stay tuned…
