I'm looking at Mother's Day from a different perspective this year. It may be because all my friends are having babies, or because I read a lot about it on the internet, or because I am realizing that soon it will be me. I am starting to understand what motherhood entails. From the moment those two little lines appear on the stick, your life changes. It's hard work and it's so rewarding.
With Mother's Day this weekend, I want to take a moment to celebrate my mom. She is such a strong beautiful woman that has taught me countless life lessons. She taught me to work hard, be independent, be polite, and to be proud of who I am. To this day I look to her for guidance and I'm sure that will multiply tenfold when I become a mom. We moved to a new country when I was five, where she barely spoke the language, had no job, and knew no one here. With my father travelling for work, she was my primary caregiver. I attribute so much of my success to her.
Thank you Mom for everything. I love you.
