A quick read, but one that reminds you that you’re not a lone.

This is a great, “friendly reminder” from Lynn Shattuck in her note to other mothers, To My Post-Partum Self: Things I Wish I’d Known, “You are not alone. Other mothers struggle, too. They flicker like candles, awake in the night in a thousand bedrooms, in the past, in the future, right now. They hunch over their babies, nursing. They are limp and worn, like wrung out washcloths. Remember them when you are up in the night for the fifth time. When your baby won’t stop crying; when you can’t stop crying.”
