The Well-Connected Mother
The Centrality of Motherhood Is Not Just an Idea

by Juli Loesch Wiley

We get mothering wrong sometimes. We get it wrong with sexism and with feminism. We get it wrong with sentimentality and utopianism and cruelty. And when we get it wrong, a conversation about one good mother can help us get it right again: a conversation about the Mother of God—she who is more honorable than the Cherubim and more glorious than the Seraphim, as the ancient hymn put it—as a pattern and prescription for all human motherhood.

My newest niece was born yesterday, December 15, 2005. Presley Victoria Grace was born at 1103 am PST, weighing 3200 grams. It was, by all accounts, a calm and peaceful cesarean, without all the angst and drama that surrounded the births of Presley's two older brothers. When I talked to my mother yesterday, she told me that my sis couldn't come to the phone because the baby was snuggled in and nursing like a champion.
Thanks all of you who prayed.
Yesterday was also the birthday of my eldest daughter Jessica - happy belated birthday! My mom is blessed that her oldest and youngest granchildren now have the same birthday - one less date to remember.
