We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful; it's that women are strong. -Laura Stavoe Harm.
A friend of mine posed this quote on Facebook the other day and boy is it true. I think motherhood has maybe had a bigger impact than birth though...
I've never loved such a challenging job quite so much,
never loved such a beautifully moody person so very deeply and completely,
never been so satisfied and happy with my quiet little life as I am now.
And I find that nothing is too much for me to do for my kid, and that my husband is more amazing than I ever knew.
