Last month at church I saw a girl I knew who was a student when I substitute taught at the high school a few years ago. She's married now, & pregnant with her first child. She looked so beautiful with her round belly, except for the constant frown on her face. After the meeting, I went to congratulate her & tell her how great she looked. She just said, "Oh, no. I'm so frumpy!" It actually made me sad for her because I realized that she has no idea how lucky she is! Another thing that bothered me is that she shouldn't feel that way because she's model gorgeous anyway. I do feel sorry for people who take their children for granted. I know so many mothers who complain about their kids & think of them as an inconvenience. This is hard to swallow. I KNOW that motherhood isn't easy, but I wouldn't trade it for anything! I wish there were some way to help all mothers understand what a special gift they have!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
