Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers, Mother Earth included. It's such a privilege and honor to be a mother, and I happen to realize this truth pretty late in my life. For the longest time I was resisting the idea, worried that I won't be good enough, that it is not my calling. To my surprise, I turned out to be a natural. Motherhood is by far the most rewarding and challenging thing I've done in my life and I am so glad I had a chance to experience it.
I came across this lovely quote on one of my favorite blogs written by  Jodi.

"The most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards. It is the year of travail - when the soul of a woman must birth the mother inside her. The emotional labor pains of becoming a mother are far greater than the physical pangs of birth; these are the growing surges of your heart as it pushes out selfishness and fear and makes room for sacrifice and love. It is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy than the event of childbirth, perhaps it is even more sacred." - Joy Kusek

                         Waiting for the breakfast that daddy is preparing. I wish it was Mother's Day every day!
