Becoming Real

One of my favorite books has always been The Velveteen Rabbit.  A sweet older mama friend passed this piece along to me, The Velveteen Mother.  I am not even there yet, but it gave me all the feelings.  You should read it, and give yourself and your body a break.  We are being loved oh so good right now.
“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”
