Mother's Day

I can't believe my second Mother's Day is already coming up this weekend! After last year, it's now one of my favorite days of the year!
Has motherhood changed me? Heck yeah, more than I like to admit. I'd say it's magnified my strengths and weaknesses, deepened my compassion for others, gotten me to be more organized, made me rely on Chetan more, made me appreciate my own parents even more, softened me to the point of tears when I hear a good song or read a sweet poem, strengthened my faith in G_d, taught me how important it is to live in the present moment, and made me realize how wonderful an ordinary day can be when it's spent with my lil monkeys.
On the flip side, at times I forget I'm not in high school anymore, I'm a mom with responsibilities! I am still amazed that someone has allowed me to be charge of these little creatures. I still often feel so clueless about so many things, but my monkeys are alive, healthy and happy, so I like to think I'm doing something right.
Bieng a mom a is most amazing thing ever, and also the most challenging! And I'm still a rookie...
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there! Enjoy it!
