Mothers & Women

Happy Mother's Day. Whether you are, were, will be or want to be a Mother, we should all be fortunate for all the wonderful women in our lives, as my Mom put it so nicely :) We should be thankful every day for all the women in our lives. I am so lucky to have so many great women in my life. So many of my good friends have become mothers in the last few years and I couldn't be more proud. To watch them become a mother has been such a life changing event, even more so to them I'm sure, but it has also been very beautiful. Women are so strong, beautiful, amazing people. To be able to grow something inside of you for almost a year and be able to push it out of your body is just such a beautiful thing. I'd like to thank all the women in my life for just being them and being so wonderful to me. I hope that one day I will be half as good a mother as mine has been to me. Happy Mother's Day, and more importantly Happy Women's Day :)
