'Yes, Jo, I think your harvest will be a good one,' began Mrs. March...
'Not half so good as yours, mother. Here it is, and we never can thank you enough for the patient sowing and reaping you have done,' cried Jo, with the loving impetuosity which she never could outgrow.
'I hope there will be more wheat and fewer tares every year,' said Amy softly.
'A large sheaf, but I know there's room in your heart for it, Marmee dear,' added Meg's tender voice.
Touched to the heart, Mrs. March could only stretch out her arms, as if to gather children and grand-children to herself, and say, with face and voice full of motherly love, gratitude, and humility:
'Oh, my girls, however long you may live, I never can wish you a greater happiness than this!'
- Louisa May Alcott

I think I have the best job on earth. Being a Mother has brought more joy and purpose and love to my life than I could have ever imagined. I cherish it so much that I have wanted to add to my family for some time now and my husband has finally agreed! Now it is up to God to decide if our family will grow....To celebrate the possibility of having more children with my amazing husband....I am giving away a necklace that symbolizes my love of having babies!
This is a Pregnancy Necklace made by my good friend Monica at Moon Over Maize. You do not have to be pregnant to win this necklace. You don't even have to have ever been pregnant. You just must have some precious children in your life. But you can't have more than 6 children. The necklace will only hold 6 birthstones.
The design of this handmade necklace captures the beautiful curves of a pregnant woman. The sterling silver circle in the belly represents a woman's uterus and the beads in the middle are the colors of your children's birthstones. A special keepsake to celebrate a very special time in your life.
To win this necklace with your choice of birthstones....leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about having children.
