Listening to a BBC report on a doctor in Tamil Nadu who gave free surgery to reverse family planning operations (the tying tubes one, I guess) on women who lost their children during the tsunami.
There is nothing in this world quite as infectious as a woman when she finds out she is pregnant for a child she has hoped for. There are some things we men will never know, these are the things we will always envy women for, an inner grace such as this one. We can only sense it, in the way it makes us smile, a sheen on the skin from all a woman’s joy.
To my mother, my sisters, my female friends, I treasure each of you now as ever.
