There is no greater challenge or more profound joy in a woman's life than that of motherhood.

The Miracle of Life

Life is precious
We hear it so often
it becomes
a litany without meaning
until the moment when
life explodes upon you
Pain and ecstasy at once
place within your arms that perfect
precious entity
The absolute realization of an idea
that words keep in the shadow
of our consciousness
A kind universe
The smiling face of God
Good beyond measure
This tiny individual --
this proof of hope and truth
and all things beautiful
The wonder of creation that is
your child.
