There is No Other Love Like a Mother's Love for Her Child

So call me emotional ...which is funny, because I have always tended to not be. But, it seems, the older I get, the more ...?? ... emotional I get... I am 'moved' more easily. This is not always a good thing. But, then again, it is at times (am I getting more indecisive too?!?) :-)

A big jump in my "emotionality" has occurred since my husband's and my daughter entered the world. One does see things... oh, I don't know that "differently" is the right word... perhaps it is for some... for me, I see things more clearly... sharper.

Okay, so back to the emotional part~ on the sidebar here, there is a list of songs. There is one by Celine Dion. It's called "Goodbye's the Saddest Word". Every time I hear it and listen to the words, I just about bawl at the line "There is no other love like a mother's love for her child". It is so true beyond words... and I don't think it would have 'triggered' me before my child like it does since her arrival.

If you haven't heard the song and you're a momma, listen to it.

I've heard the song and have to swallow hard to keep from 'bawling' I agree, it is so true ... a mother's love for her child(ren) is like no other. For better or worse, that emotional bond continues to grow and 'hold' regardless of age.
