Amy's story of the homebirth she went to last Friday night had this wonderful quote in it. I've really got to read that book!

Here is a little mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God, and the body in which it dwells is worth all it will cost, since it is abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to your mother’s heart, welcome to her time, her strength, her health, to her most tender cares, to her life-long prayers! Oh how rich I am, how truly, how wondrously blest!

~ Elizabeth Prentiss’ Stepping Heavenward

I need to read it too! I bought it a couple of years ago at a homeschool conference, and have never picked it up!

It's been on my "to invest in someday" list for far too long!
