Somewhere Between Longing and Joy

2 thoughts on “Somewhere Between Longing and Joy”

  1. Beautiful. I often feel like this, sometimes almost overwhelmed by the beauty of life’s ordinary moments. I think it is because I know I cannot hold on to them, no matter how hard I try. I can remember the joy of my firstborn, and how I wanted to be able to preserve moments in time so I could go back again and experience that profound love and togetherness again, but as she grows (now almost 7) I realise how nothing truly belongs to me, even memories I thought were mine. It’s bittersweet – a sort of divine despair.
