As a daughter and now a mom
Today, marks ten months of motherhood. It's been less than a year and someday it will seem like a drop in the bucket, yet I already understand more of my own mom with each milestone my daughter takes on. I find myself surprised by how easy it is to worry and how I feel I can't get enough time with my girl.
I'm so grateful to be a mother. Not only for the new perspective on life I have, but for the way it's allowed me to get to know my mom (even though she's been deceased for nearly thirteen years).
As great as being a mom is, Mother's Day also brings its share of heartache. For those who long to be mamas, are separated from their moms or have a difficult relationship with their mother, I know Mother's Day can shine an unwelcome light on the feelings that go along with it.
And for all of you who are moms, Happy Mother's Day!
