A sudden rush of emotion. Happy. Sad. Excited. Frightened. Elation. Worry.
From there, every experience is unique. The days pass. The baby grows.
There is a special beauty to a mother with child, a beauty some describe as a “glow.” I think it’s more than that. I am convinced that the very essence of the child, its happiness, its dreams, its hope, is manifest in its mother in the days before the child is born.
Maternity is as beautiful as life itself.
