Another fellow blogger, Matushka Emily, has a post up by Matushka Jenny Schroedel:
40 Days With Natalie
It's a great explanation theologically and medically of why women should rest during the 40 days following childbirth. Maybe I'll post some of my own thoughts on this topic later. At the moment, I am too sleep-deprived to write much of anything that might be considered coherent.
And I'm trying to observe my 40 days, so as soon as my husband comes home from the service for Sts. Peter and Paul, I'm going to bed!
