I found this quote on another blog and I love it.

"Birth is just the first of countless times we will confront the fear of the unknown for the love of the child." Peggy O’Mara

I don't know if there is a truer statement about having children. Children force us to confront fear every day some small - will they fall and hurt themselves as they learn to walk? - and some big - will they be content in their future lives? The big bad boogeyman seems to lurk behind ever corner.

The unknowns are overwhelming at times. I think I most fear them at night when the kids are laying next to me at bed. When they sleep, they look the most innocent and the most fragile. I wish I could keep them there forever -- warm and safe next to me.
