Mission Statement

We are a people who tell stories in one form or another.
After all isn't blogging just another way to gather around and tell those stories?

Motherhood is Painless is about finding the humor in the every day. In finding the happiness in those stories that we tell. What would happen if we *all* learned to laugh at ourselves? Maybe then the dark corners would recede a bit and we would all rejoice at the love we find there.

Someone to Love

Eight years.

I've been married today for eight years. If we were exchanging presents - linen or lace, pottery or bronze. But, I don't think we are.

The road has been hard at times, we've had sickness and we've had health. We've been richer, and poorer. But always we have been happy in our love.

I, Diane, take you, Dave, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, 
to love and to cherish, until we are parted by death. This is my solemn vow.

Always, my love.


Understand, I'll slip quietly
away from the noisy crowd
when I see the pale
stars rising, blooming, over the oaks.

I'll pursue solitary pathways
through the pale twilit meadows,
with only this one dream:
You come too.

Rainer Maria Rilke

May you always be as happy as you are now. May you be as happy as we are.

Happy anniversary. Eight years is a long time to stay committed to love. Hope you have eight by eight more.
