Entering a cathedral with prayer in my heart


Eleven years ago tomorrow

We mothers are learning to mark our mothering success by our daughters’ lengthening flight. – Letty Cottin Pogrebin

As often as I have witnessed the miracle, held the perfect creature with its tiny hands and feet, each time I have felt as though I were entering a cathedral with prayer in my heart. – Margaret Sanger

    Happy Birthday Grace! “Parents who feel lucky in their children, usually have children lucky in their parents.” Cross-stitch Sampler I made for my parents 29 (yikes) years ago and it still rings true. Enjoy the celebrations and birthday weekend!

    I always think mothers should be celebrated on their children’s birthdays. Happy birthday to you!

    That quote would be miraculous itself, no matter who said it. But the fact that it comes from Margaret Sanger makes it even better.
