REPOST of First blog on 2-27-10
I am reposting this because people were having problems reading it.
Welcome to the birth of my blog! 6 lbs, 3 oz, right on time..born Feb 27th 2010.
I will call this new creation "Wings". Thirty-some years ago, before the birth of my first son, I would have nightmares that I would forget to feed him, or leave him in the stroller on some forgotten street.
I had quite a few of those dreams. So, for some, motherhood is born of fear and unknowing. Thirty-some years later, with more children and now grandchildren, I now understand those dreams. They say that when you dream about babies, these dreams are powerful, creative dreams that launch new ideas and products and plans. I've had plenty of dreams.
So here is my new baby, "Wings". I hope you enjoy the thoughts, poems, emotions, triumphs and failures in this, my new endeavor.
A book will also be born of these entries... but more on that later.
To all you mothers... Mothering takes wings of steel. You are heroes and martyrs. Each day brings more burdens of joy, more swelling of pride, more heartache inside. Give yourself a pat on the back, if you can reach your back, otherwise, just grab a snickers!
Thanks Cynthia for the push!
