  1. Wow!! Thank you so much. You are in both worlds, the sky and the trenches. I am in the deep, muddy trenches.

  2. Thanks for the wonderful peptalk. Perfect timing for me (yesterday was my 41th birthday, and I was also B”H tiredly running after a 2 year old, as well as dealing with a child who thought I was public enemy #1. I needed this today…)

  3. In surviving the trenches in great part due to your blog!

    This video really spoke to me today. I’m 47 and my youngest turns two in July. Somedays I feel more like a grandmother than a mother. But the big picture is that G-d has blessed us so much and has such wonderful plans for us. He has such wonderful plans for His people. Just thinking about it makes me forget about being so tired.
    Todah Chanah Jenny!

  5. Thks so much for this beautiful perspective! I am also 42 and pregnant with my 7th kid and the youngest is 1… whenever i am discouraged and afraid of what people think of us religious mothers of big families and again and again pregnant i think of you because you are my model chana jenny.i have been following you for 6 years now and our kids are pretty the same age so you give me so much hizuk with your insights and beautiful strength! Keep going in good health!!

  6. I can relate to the lady who couldnt have anymore. Except im quite a bit younger than her. The burden of pain and anguish, the burden of loss and grief, those trenches are so much worse than the trenches of mothering young children. BH you have no idea. Your trenches come with joy, simcha, life. You are so lucky. But you wont ever really feel in your kishkes how lucky you are cuz we dont know what you have till its gone. Including the blessing of being able to have more children.
