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.

The tides are turning.
The light lingers longer in the evenings. And you despair less and less each day.

The sun is warm, when the wind dies down.
The sky is a perfect blue.

There are still moments where the darkness creeps in. But it's not the same penetrating black thing as before - it's a crepe-colored grey, with cracks of beauty seeping in. Flashes of light. Glimmers.
Amid the dead, dry leaves from last fall, when the bleak days began, there is life. Daffodils, and crocuses are starting to peek their cautious heads out. That's how I feel.

Cautious and peeking
