"In nine months, I would learn the price of motherhood firsthand. I would know exactly what it takes to be a mother. I would gain a whole new understanding of and gratitude for the beautiful woman I call Mom. I would learn about things mothers experience that their children often know very little about."
I've been alone. The media glamourizes running into the woods as if that is the only solitude that matters. Any room, any city street can teach you who you are. Mother Nature doesn't need millions of people trampling on her privacy just so they can "find" themselves.
Even though my children are all grown with families of their own now, I am so happy that we never put materialistic things in front of family. If we ever did anything right with our kids, I am thrilled to know we did that right as well as our love for our children was and still is unconditional. Praise God!
