When you're married, you find your way together, he lets you sit on his lap, and you toast to happy days ahead.
When you're pregnant, everyone is willing to move out of the way, give you their seat, and bring you a drink.
When you have a few kids,
“Give us grace and strength to forbear and to persevere. Give us courage and gaiety, and the quiet mind. Spare to us our friends, soften to us our enemies. Bless us, if it may be, in all our innocent endeavours. If it may not, give us the strength to encounter that which is to come, that we may be brave in peril, constant in tribulation, temparate in wrath, and in all changes of fortune, and down to the gates of death, loyal and loving to one another.”
Sounds a lot like the Serenity Prayer, but very thought out indeed.
