Motherhood



When motherhood becomes the fruit of a deep yearning, not the result of ignorance or accident, its children will become the foundation of a new race. ~Anonymous

"To nourish children and raise them against odds is any time, any place, more valuable than to fix bolts in cars or design nuclear weapons." ~ Marilyn French

"Making the decision to have a child-it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." ~Elizabeth Stone

Amen to that.

My middle daughter Nadalene always says 'you may want a child but would that child want you?'

Love Renee xoxo
