When I read this passionate essay by my friend Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa, I asked if she would be willing to guest blog for me today. Destiny is a wife, mother, writer, and voice for those who cannot speak for themselves, especially the unborn. She can be found at newwavefeminists.blogspot.com
As a mother I'm so blessed. And I hate that word. It implies I've done something to receive favor when that's absolutely not true. I'm average. I'm the norm. I love my children just as much as any mother could. I sacrifice for them like any mother would. That love has never truly been tested, though. By the grace of God, my children's lives have never been at risk to the point where I had to sacrifice my own life for theirs. Because again, I'm hashtag "blessed."
