Alexa Wilding

How has your perspective on motherhood and life in general changed after such a dramatic life event (on finding out one of her twins had cancer just before his 1st birthday, every Mother's worst nightmare)

"That last day I walked Lou to the emergency room, when I still didn’t know what was wrong, I felt connected to every mother that had ever lived. That feeling has stayed with me. Motherhood is love. It is death of the ego (not your amigo!) and it is to surrender to God, whatever form he/she takes for you. Personally for me, that higher power is nature. We are all living things growing and changing and malfunctioning, etc. We are one. So, while, yes, my heart was broken, I feel lucky that I get to wear such a messy organ on my sleeve and be a part of such a wild world."

Again Mother Mag finds me another idol/girl crush/inspiration. Read the article here.
