Motherhood, Woman, you are respected. A mother carries a child for 9 months in her womb allowing her body to shift in ways she may not appreciate and the process of birth either stretches or cuts. Either way, it leaves scars. The raising of her child takes the sacrifice of sleep and the life she is used to. Her job is 24 hours. It never ends.
