I was thinking about the lives of my children today and the fact that my body was able to nurture them from conception until they weaned from breastfeeding. That means my body ALONE grew, housed, nourished, and protected the lives of my children from the moment they were conceived until the moment their primary nourishment became table food. For my youngest, I am still her primary source of nutrition. That thought alone blows my mind. Here are these living, breathing human beings and I have been able to keep them alive with my OWN BODY! Not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES!
I am amazed at the strength of a woman.
