The lotus flower symbolizes rising from a dark place into beauty and rebirth, as this is exactly how a lotus flower grows. Lotus flowers grow directly out of muddy and murky waters and produce beautiful white and pink blossoms.

As you prepare to make your transition into motherhood, perhaps not for the first time, I give this image to you.  May you find beauty on your path and recognize the challenges and “murkey” moments for what they are:  the sacred nourishment of your growing life.

Remember your roots.  

And remember to be curious…
