Have you ever found yourself heading in an entirely new, unexpected direction in life? Found a new hobby that fascinates you...discovered a new love of travel, or music, or art, or a craft that gives you joy? Or found yourself in a different family situation than you'd ever imagined? That certainly happened to me.
In college, I had no thought about marriage--I was happy showing my horses, skiing, going to school. And then I met my future husband. Four years later we married, four years after that our first child came just days after I finished my orals and comps in grad school. Life changes-- but how sweet they were! I had never guessed how much I would love being a mom to these two boys, or the sister that followed. Or that, in being a mom, I would come to fully appreciate the work and sacrifice and love my own mother showered on her own family. I only wish she was still here, so I could tell her again how much I love and appreciate everything she did.
However you celebrate Mother's Day--with your own mom, as a mom yourself, or with someone who has been a loving aunt, friend or mentor, here's wishing you a wonderful day on Sunday and throughout the coming year!
