ON DISCOVERY

Letters to Freya: Discovery

I was 31 weeks pregnant and attending our first shower. 

By best friend Mica thought it would be sentimental for everyone in attendance to write a little letter to you. Transferring the feelings in their hearts down to paper.

We planned on waiting to read them to you till after you were born, but I couldn’t resist.

We read them on the way home, in between waves of tears. 

I had no intention to use the letters we wrote you for anything other than a keepsake.

Tied together with twine, they sat on the shelf until now. 

 

I never thought that my first letter would culminate with my journey as a diarist. 

What I’ve discovered is a desire to continue writing to you. Sharing my struggles, my secrets, and my triumphs in motherhood.   

To create a keepsake for you to one day use as a reference in your own discovery of motherhood. 

It won’t be perfect, nothing in life is, but it will be a purposeful journal of memories, hope, and love – for you.

So until the next letter. 

Love you.
