Something I read just made me think of a statement that a man in India made to me. We were talking about having children. He is an infertility specialist that deals with men only. Anyway he was remarking on the miracle of being a mom of seven healthy children. I told him yes I was blessed, but being a mom for such a long time was not always easy. I said that having a child at 40 really threw me for awhile. He looked at me and said yes you have been a mother many times, but your youngest has only been a child once. That statement changed me. I came home thinking that I needed to remember that profound statement. Well each of us is going through something that we have never been through before, be kind to yourself. Growing is not easy.
