“Remember this, for it is as true and true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.”

Emotion-coaching begins with managing our own unruly emotions so that we aren’t venting on our kids. When we yell, we’re modeling tantrumming. When we stay calm in the face of their upset, we’re teaching kids to manage their feelings. Tough? Yes, because most of us weren’t raised this way ourselves.
~Dr. Laura Markham, AhaParenting.com

“Attending births is like growing roses. You have to marvel at the ones that just open up and bloom at the first kiss of the sun but you wouldn’t dream of pulling open the petals of the tightly closed buds and forcing them to blossom to your time line.”
~Gloria Lemay

“When you have come to the edge of all the light you know and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things will happen: there will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught how to fly.”
