Lola gave me the best Mother’s Day present ever. She slept two full nights. Yes, bliss. Russ took all 4 kids out of the house Friday evening so that I could have some quiet time all alone. Yes, bliss. And he let me sleep in Saturday morning, made a yummy sausage and eggs breakfast, then hung out with the boys while Lola and I visited my parents, sister, and brother-in-law. (Quiet, adult conversation!!) Yes, bliss.
Happy Mother’s Day to all my beautiful mom readers!
I desire to be a mother--
if only to give food to the craving activity of my soul...
Maternity is an enterprise in which
I have opened an enormous stake...
Motherhood will develop my energy, enlarge my heart,
and compensate me for all things by infinite joys!
~Honore de Balzac, Memoirs of Two Young Married Women (1894)
