Barbara Mahany writes, "Mothering was my crash course in love. Love of the sort I call Divine. Love in the way we yearn to be loved: Without end. Without question. Without giving in to exhaustion. Love with a big and boundless heart. Love with eyes and ears--and soul--wide open. Love even when it's not so easy."
