From those first moments when my two were close
and safe in the nest.
Through those first steps and
the early exploration of their worlds...
During all the playful moments,
and the long walk, "long talk" moments...
I have loved being a mother.
It wasn't a dream of mine - this motherhood thing.
I never imagined myself in this role.
No, I grew up with dreams of stardom and an independent life.
as the song says...
"You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes
well, you just might find,
You get what you need."
The Rolling Stones
Today is my 27th mother's day.
My kids may think they are celebrating me today.
But, in my heart,
I'm really and truly celebraing them.
