Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.

I can't decide what is more beautiful -- the words or the photo...

Thanks Neil.

I had a photo of another child I had taken but after discovering the quote and recognising the truth in it, I searched for the right photograph of my daughter.

The photo of your daughter is beautiful indeed, wanderingwoman and as for the words, never were truer words spoken. THanks for sharing this.

This is such a beautiful poem - I have enjoyed catching up with your blogs - I think I read the others before - you are such a good writer! Were you really brought up in Mosgiel?

chiefbiscuit said...

By others I mean the Meandering Margeaux and didn't read your personal postings - but I've caught up now luckily cos it's certainly worth it

woman wandering said...

Thanks chiefbiscuit :)

Yes, born and raised in Mosgiel, then spent a few years in places like Cromwell, Blenheim and Te Anau ... I am totally in love with the South Island.

Lovely and so, so true.

Your daughter is beautiful.

Thanks christina ... I think she is too. And I had to post the quote once I found it ... it described the sensation so perfectly.
