|Bear, one spring not so long ago...|
More than grief; however, I am so grateful for the five opportunities that I have had to be a mommy to a little baby. What a wonderful gift that we had these younger three children, so that I could once again experience that joy. Appreciate it far more than I could perhaps when I was a new mother at age 20. Or appreciate it differently. So differently, when it was not easy to become pregnant that third time around. After loss through miscarriages. Truly, grateful.
Now, dry your eyes, Woman! And get back to the raising of children: the chaos, the laughter, the scolding and busyness that this stage of motherhood brings.
