Reflections

It seems like yesterday that my first child, a son, was placed in my arms and I began a new journey as a mother.  As children began filling the house with laughter and tears, I relished every moment of motherhood.  Three girls in a row made me a little uneasy, realizing we were part of a Mennonite farming community in Nebraska and sons were highly prized.  A second son arrived, and later, two more adorable little girls. Their father summed up the situation by saying, “Its’ okay, if we have girls, the boys will eventually come.”
