I never expected to be that woman. Her. But I am.
Because I didn’t realise she might have spent years wishing the day would come when her daughter had the strength to stand and walk along with her. That it didn't matter if other people stared, whispered, or veered away at the sight of someone who had something ‘wrong’ with them. Because holding hands with her girl was just about the best feeling there was. And that every single time they walked step by step together, the pride would swell and cocoon her with its warmth.
I never expected to be that woman. Her. But I am. And it’s bloody marvellous.
