A blog I read and to which I have the link on the left has a wonderful reflection on Motherhood:
Motherhood is not a job, not a role, not a pastime. It is a vocation. I have been called by God. He names us, knows us, calls us by name and when we answer, we become what he calls. Mothers are called by God to emulate him, to give life, to pour out ourselves, giving away with abandon, to love completely, selflessly, even when hurts, especially when it hurts. A mother loves. God is love. By being mothers, we draw near to God.
Please pray for Melanie and Dom and their family after losing their dear little Francis by miscarriage last weekend.
