I'm Jane. I live in the happiest place on earth. Not Disneyland, but in a little house in the big woods. My husband, Bruce and I are enjoying the last of our eleven children. Three are married, three are in college, four are at home and our little son, Taylor, passed away when he was three.
My son, Nick, gave me a perfect analogy about motherhood. It's like a field of roses, he said. You approach it from a distance and it looks so beautiful. Then you find yourself in the middle of it and there are thorns and struggles and it's hard to see where you are. Then you get to the other side and look back and say, Wow, that was so beautiful!
