Mother’s Day Epiphanies
Even though Mother’s Day comes every year, and some mothers have been around for many years, each year brings something different.
As a child on Mother’s Day I tried to understand what it would be like to one day be a mother.
The year I mourned for a pregnancy that ended too soon I appreciated the mothers around me who shared their similar experiences in support.
Another year I held my 5 month old baby close and realized in a new way what my mother had done for me.
This year I see the fruits of my mothering labors as there are no more diapers to change and my oldest daughter graduates from high school.
I look forward to future Mother’s Days with grandchildren (in the distant future).
What good thing did you learn or experience during this Mother’s Day, as a mother, a child or a spouse?
