Motherhood, the culmination of an angelic gift and Heavenly patience. No greater earthly love and sacrifice exists than the love of a mother for her children. Christine, I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael
Being a Mom is my greatest gift, being a Grandma is even greater..the miracles of life!!!
I never procreated. I married into a preteen and a teenager. A little culture shock for me but I grew to love it, even during terrible times. Wouldn't trade for anything. Patrick
Christine, I am not a mother, but
I give you credit on not giving up
being a mother. You are definitely
a stronger woman than I.
"No Matter What"
So much respect for Christine!
Your Motherhood tearing at my
I fought being a father every step of the way- for I was so sure I could never be the father my Dad was to me.
I even married a woman who was not ever supposed to have children due to her medical condition. That was a given, and it was fine with me.
But once we were together her medical condition cleared up- no more seizures- got her driver's license...and then she wanted children.
Well- anything for love- anything.
When the ultra sound showed a boy- and we named him Christopher- I was instant Dad. I blew him kisses against his mother's belly- and felt him punch back.
There is no explaining this love- except- no matter what.
Being a sentimental mother, my eyes misted while reading your thoughts on motherhood; your portrayal was exquisite and endearing. I am such a fan of your style of writing, just one of many, I am sure. Joy L. Hale
I like the way you blog, Christine,
always written with great skill from the heart. This reminded me of my late mother who delivered five of us, four of whom survived to live out her life
in the selfless love that only a mother can give. -gene.
Christine thanks much for writing this. I don't know anyone else who could have in that blessed style you have.
You made me feel it, understand and understand you so much better.
And, what courage. Courage I believe is your gift and I am sure you will give that as well to your children.
I have six and I have sense of what is involved in loving each and every one.
To be a loved and respected parent whether a mother or a father is indeed one of the best accomplishments we can say we have earned. You have captured this theme well and all I can say that the only thing that equals being a parent is being a grand parent...
