The Miracle of Motherhood – Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren, 79 – Actress

“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. You are connected to your child and to all those who touch your lives. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”

Sophia Loren knows of what she speaks. She had great difficulty having children and when they finally arrived she was a devoted mother.  In 1968, at the age of 34, after having suffered two miscarriages, Mrs. Carlo Ponti was confined to bed for nearly the entire nine months of her pregnancy.  Her first son, Carlo Jr. , was born to great fanfare , in December of 1968. Her extensive confinement was repeated during her following pregnancy.  Her second son, Edoardo, was born in January of 1973 when she was 39 years old. kqd

    • I agree wholeheartedly. And, you know why I feel this has changed. Women have substituted the tenets of feminism for the tenets of their fore bearers Christian faith. And as a result, nothing is as it should be.

  1. Speaking of famous women, I am not impressed with Sarah Palin. I know that many conservatives like her a lot, but she really needs to quit promoting herself and go back home and take care of her family/children.

    Her oldest daughter had a child out of wedlock and her oldest son was married and soon divorced. If the mother is out promoting her career, the kids are left raising themselves. If Sarah Palin wants to run for public office, then don’t have children.

    Sarah Palin is a great speaker and is absolutely, drop-dead gorgeous, but she comes across as being selfish. Back in 2008, I was planning on voting for McCain/Palin, but the Lord told me not to vote for anybody.

    Motherhood is beautiful and it is very sacrificial. But too many women sacrifice their children’s formative years so that they can chase their own careers and become media darlings for the madding crowd.

    • I wholeheartedly agree with you. Unfortunately, most of today’s young women have been raised, and encouraged, by society and their own families, including their oblivious Dad’s, to pursue an expensive college degree followed by a career. By the time the women realize that having their own family was more important than their half-baked “careers”, (which all normal women eventually discover) they were already on a path from which there was no return, so they try to do both, with little success. And inevitably, because, unlike a career, children are very pliable, the kids are usually the ones left hanging. Women should return to just working before being married and having children and, after their children are grown. Most women’s “careers” fail to live up to their expectations anyway.So, nothing gained, nothing lost.
