One post that really touched my heart was posted by Kathy Rhodes, adapted from her friend, Susie Dunham, and now further adapted by me.
"These are two people who can make me laugh the hardest and cry the deepest sobs my heart can push out. My job is never done. Ever. For that I am grateful to God (and Larry) for giving me these people to love."
It's true. These two smiling young adults are forever my babies, and no one can make me happier, prouder, more full of love, and no one can make me cry harder or hurt more than they sometimes do. It's both the blessing and the curse of motherhood.
My friend, Susan Cushman, reminded me of a quote by Elizabeth Stone in her blog yesterday:
“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.”
