Spiritual Uplift

Ok, so this might not have anything to do with religion, per say. But I thought that it was a beautiful article anyway! All on motherhood, and maybe a good view for those who aren't mothers as well...

My reactions was first "Wow. This applies to me as well, and I have two." It wasn't that long ago when I did only have one, and it was hard. It's hard with two too! I love it when she talks about how having one child was so heavy, and now having more is light. It's complete perspective that changes as life changes. But my most favorite part is when she says,
"You’re suffering now because you’re turning into a new woman, a woman who is never allowed to be alone.  For what?  Only so that you can become strong enough to be a woman who will be left." 

Love it. Hope you did too.

Thanks for the link. I really like that article. I was actually just thinking about this today--how moms of one seem so stressed, but moms of more seem not quite as stressed. That article makes total sense, though. With your first, everything is just so so new (not that it isn't new when you have two and then three and so on). I'll have to bookmark it to read again in the future :)
