How Motherhood Changes You

I love how this scripture and quote explain how a woman changes as she gives her life to her children:

"Whosoever will save [her] life shall lose it; but whosoever will lose [her] life for my sake, the same shall save it"
--Luke 9:24

"Taking care of a small, dependent, growing person is transforming, because it...exposes our vulnerabilities as well as our nobility. We lose our sense of self, only to find it and have it change again and again....We figure out how we want to interpret the wider world, and we learn to interact with all those who affect our children....In the end, we have learned more about ourselves, about the cycles of life, and humanity itself." 
--Ellen Galinsky
