mother's day

July 4, 1991
Can the fierce, protective, primal love of a mother ever change?

. . . . . Because long afterward (forever in fact), you will carry your children as you did in the months before their birth. They are still there, just under your heart, a constant beloved presence, a burden and a delight.
