Scrabble in Stocking Feet

The Ache of Expecting--

"It's like taking a glass and filling it-- first with stones, and you pile them to the top, but there are empty spaces.
Then you try pebbles, and the fit is better, but still there are pockets where nothing goes.
But if you take water, and pour it in, you fill it completely--no empty spaces at all.
You're like that. You fit me. You're like water over stones."
