To All Moms

Being a mom isn't just the physical act of bearing a child. From the moment the first child is born or however delivered into our life, a woman is forever changed. There a bond that is never broken, never comes to an end even in death. That is something only women can do. Isn't that amazing?

Right after the birth of my first child, my older daughter, I told my husband "I'm a mom now." He said, yes, but he wasn't showing me that he really got it. I said again, "I'm a MOM now." Then he looked in my eyes and he understood. I did not know what to expect, but the minute I saw my daughter I was hooked. I was a MOM. And each time after that I was forever attached to the child given to me to raise.

To all the mothers reading this little post, I wish you love and memories to wrap around your heart and make you smile. All day. Big sigh.

Thank you, CiCi. I know that even though my children are no longer on the planet, it doesn't change the fact that I too am a MOM and always will be. Forever. Happy Mother's Day to you, too. :-)

This post makes me think of the passage of time and the joys, sorrows and challenges of parenting. Nothing could be more difficult and yet more important. A Happy Mother's Day to you CiCi. And in a few hours I'll be celebrating with my Mom and family too. We are the lucky ones!

Happy Mother's Day, CiCi! Words can't really describe the "job", but "this little post" says it nicely.

Yes! I remember when I was pregnant the first time, wondering what it would feel like to be a mother. And as soon as my son came into this world, I was overwhelmed with a love for him so strong that no one could ever have prepared me for it. Motherhood is truly a gift. Happy Mothers Day, CiCi!
