Motherhood is always a challenge

The birth of a child changes a woman’s life in countless ways

Motherhood is at least a struggle. It is the one job women are called to perform that has no prerequisites. On the job training is the only real preparation we ever get. Luckily, children are resilient, and most of them prosper. Luckily, women are adaptive and most of them begin to get the hang of the mothering thing before it's too late. The reality of becoming and being a mother isn't captured in the charming rhymes of the Mother's Day card, but something special really does happen inside the soul of a woman when a child is born. I come face to face with that simple truth every day. No matter the circumstances of our lives, motherhood was designed to thrive in all times and in every environment.
