Cheryl S. Harrington –
Been there, done that and totally agree with Cherie Carter-Scott’s assessments of “Motherhood.” Having raised three children of my own I can relate to the journey discussed in these pages. It made me laugh, cry and feel so blessed for being a part of this very unique, “awesome” “passage” of life. I don’t agree AT ALL with the editorial reviewers use of the word “corny” in relating to this book. It makes me wonder if the reviewer isn’t male or maybe not a mother. Maybe if a mother, in the beginning stages. This is an excellent read for a mother-to-be a mother in the middle or a mother at the very emotional stages of “letting go.” Thank you Cherie for touching my heart. You hit the mark in my book. “Awesome” as you said, is a good description of a part of a womens life that really has no words that can totally describe what it is to be a “Mother.”
