This morning I began a new chapter in the birthing book we’re reading. It’s called ‘Gestating Motherhood’.
I gasped and read this sentence a few times. How incredible a phenomenon and beautiful a transformation.
‘Your successful evolution to parenthood depends largely on your accommodation to the vast changes which are unfolding beyond your control. Learning to accept loss of control is an integral part of birth and motherhood/fatherhood.’
-‘Birthing from Within’, pg 256
And so this morning my prayer is (as it often is);
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen.
Wahoo!! I feel like I’m on a wild roller coaster ride. 🙂 Motherhood, here I come!
