Today a new sun rises for me; everything lives, everything is animated, everything speaks to me of my passion, everything invites me to cherish it.
-Anne De Lenclos
Morning sun has broken through the fog that crept in overnight, a nice cooling fog after all the end of summer heat. I feel like this summer has lasted at least twice as long as a normal summer and I am so ready for the fall to come. I am so ready to also stop feeling nauseous and get my energy back. I am now just starting my second trimester but apparently the early pregnancy symptoms do not care at all, they insist on persisting!
And so do I, in spite of it all. I have managed to not let everything go, I have been keeping up, if nominally, and waiting it out. Getting the flu did not help, but I was very well taken care of Babou, who healed me in record amounts of time. She came into our bedroom while I was sick and stood by the bedside. She shook her hands in a motion to stop, both in front of her, and said "Mama, don't worry!" And then she leaned over me and cupped my cheek in her little hand and said, "I help you." I could not ask for more.
