Happy Mother’s Day

May 11th, 2014


Somehow, in all the months of being pregnant, it never occurred to me that I would be such a new mother on Mother’s Day this year.  But as a mom of two weeks, I already feel differently about the holiday — and part of that is so much gratitude for my own wonderful mother.

From when I first got pregnant, I’ve had a new understanding of all the many ways that my parents cared for me.  If I’m lucky, Bear will grow up with the same unconditional love and support that I did, and will be a better, happier, and more loving person because of it. 

My parents came down to Houston the day that the baby was born, and my mom spent the entire weekend in the hospital — literally, 24/7.  As we were checking out, we snapped this picture.

I’m so very grateful for her presence in my life, today and always.  So a big happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there — especially mine!
