The quote above strikes such a chord in me. Motherhood is so difficult to describe to anyone who is not in it themselves. But these words really get at the heart of the matter and are so eloquently written. I want to read them again and again throughout the rest of my life.
I wrote this quote on a card for my friend and she had the card out at her birth.
One of the most striking things she said during her labor was "This (meaning labor) is SO hard! So hard. But not as hard as raising them" (meaning her children). That also struck such a chord with me.
Such truth, wisdom, and strength.
