The phases of...

of motherhood.

Women know the way to rear up children (to be just)


They know a simple, merry, tender knack


Of tying sashes, fitting baby shoes,


And stringing pretty words that make no sense,


And kissing full sense into empty words.


~Elizabeth Barrett Browning



Grown don't mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child.
They get bigger, older, but grown? What's that suppose to mean?
In my heart it don't mean a thing.
~Toni Morrison, Beloved, 1987

I have been blessed in both.
