Today's Words of Inspiration

Yes, I am now a week overdue. I haven't been here since baby #3. It's not fun, but it's do-able. I'm fine, and the baby is fine, and that's what's really important, right?

In my reading of birth stories this morning, I found this quote, and it has buoyed me up enough to face another day. I'm not familiar with the author, but the sentiments were truly inspired!

I welcome the pain your birth will bring for I know that it will teach me many lessons about life, about rewards that come after hard work, about submission, surrender, sacrifice, about devotion, commitment and faith.

I would do anything for you, my dear precious child, and when it is all over, I am blessed with your beautiful perfect slippery little body.

I promise to update here as soon as anything happens. (Though I should warn you: I very well could be pregnant forever-- or maybe just until this baby is old enough to go to college, so don't hold your breath!)

I think I need a nap now...

  1. I hope college comes fast then.
    I will be here waiting though.
