If I Have Said It Once...

I have said it a million times. There is nothing in the world as wonderful and miraculous as becoming a mother. I was reading a book last night, Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos, and there was a passage describing the birth of a baby that rang out so true...

"My girl and I got it backward, backward and right. She did the claiming.
I was delivered, unto her.
'You are mine,' she cried, her hands reaching for my face,
and nothing was ever more true."
We say we deliver our babies and they belong to us, but in reality when I became a mother, I was born, delivered to my children. They claimed my heart and from that moment on, I belonged to them.
