Briony & I decided that we are going to wake up 15 minutes earlier on weekday mornings and do yoga together. Today was Day 1. She was PUMPED. And I cried like a crazy person during our practice because I can’t even tell you how happy I am to be doing this with her.
I remember being in a yoga class in my early 20s with a mom and her teenage daughter who came every week – wishing in my heart that someday that might be me with my daughter, but knowing in my brain that it probably wouldn’t happen (thanks to my life-destroying collection of chronic illnesses).
But IT IS HAPPENING. It happened TODAY. It happened TODAY with sunshine streaming in through the windows and my glorious miracle of a baby girl on the bright pink mat beside me. And I can’t think of a better way to start today.
