the reward.

“motherhood is both a demanding and rewarding ‘profession’. unfortunately, the reward often comes much later in life. nevertheless, a prime characteristic of a good mother is unselfishness; she can wait for the final realization of her rewards. no one– not teacher, preacher or psychologist– has the same opportunity to mold minds, nurture bodies, and develop potential usefulness.” ~dorothy patterson


This is so true. I love the picture.

:) I can’t wait. I think motherhood is belittled too often. I know its wrong, but sometimes I actually feel guilty telling people I want to have a baby soon and I might think about a career, later… but one that fits in with being a mother.

Stunning photo! Just precious!
