Happy Mother's Day

Here's something funny--funny ironic, not funny haha.

Sometimes being a mother is trying and confusing yet unexplainably rewarding and filled with love. Sometimes, when I think back on my childhood and adolescence, I remember wishing for different parents [a different mom]--how could mine be so strict when those Dorans and Dewitts were allowed to do so much--like date! haha.

Now, when I look back, I just see the deep, wide river of motherhood with spots of heavy rapids and lots of rocks and stretches of calm, cool waters, and I realize one thing...

We're in the same boat now. :D

Happy Mother's Day to all you crazy, strict, eccentric, embarrassing, yet all-in-all loving mothers out there.
