It's a home ..

I've never forgotten my obstetrician's words the moment my boy came into this world and made me a Mum. "Congratulations!" My obstetrician beamed "This is the easiest part, the labour. The hardest part is raising your child ." I believed him then. I understand his words fully now.

I came across this quote and it's one of my all time favourite soon after. Speaks so much truth. β€œThe most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards. It is the year of travail – when the soul of a woman must birth the mother inside her. The emotional labour pains of becoming a mother are far greater than the physical pangs of birth; these are the growing surges of your heart as it pushes out selfishness and fear and makes room for sacrifice and love. It is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy than the event of childbirth, perhaps it is even more sacred.” – Joy Kusek
