Motherhood

*I'm aware that Father's Day is a few days away, and I'm doing what looks like a Mother's Day post.  I'll make up for it somehow. *

Meet Rebecca. She was one of my first friends I made in NYC. Soon after I met her, she blurted out that she was a few weeks pregnant.  Now look at her! She's due any second.  I was honored when she asked me to snap a few pictures during these last few days of her pregnancy. It's such an exhausting task to grow a baby. But look at her strength and beauty and even grace! I certainly wouldn't describe most woman as graceful at this point in their pregnancy, but Rebecca is. Isn't she absolutely lovely?
For this post,  I wanted to find a quote on pregnancy/motherhood that didn't sound like it could be in an overly sentimental Hallmark card. Nothing was right, until I read an excerpt out of Louise Erdrich's memoir: The Blue Jay's Dance. I fell in love with the opening paragraph in Erdrich's book:


Cool quote, right? Good luck Rebecca! The start of another act that rapturously sucks up whole chunks your life is about to begin! Something to look forward to. Ah, it'll be great.

  2. Wow, what a quote! Also, a bit of trivia, in Australia Mother's Day is in May and Father's Day is in September, so you could consider it a really late mother's day post for your Aussie readers :) hello from half a world away!
