Mother’s Day 2020 – Thank you!

Thanks to all for my Mother’s Day cards!! All your beautiful sentiments are wonderful! As I see it, being a mother is a privilege and a lifetime, around-the-clock career. As a full-time mother, I don’t get to go home from work and unwind. Home is my work. I remember reading somewhere when Jacob was born that when you become a mother, you’re not yourself when you’re with your children and you’re not yourself when you’re NOT with your children. That is totally correct!!

Motherhood is certainly a blessing from God which causes a lot of fatigue, worry, fun and joy all at the same time once you have entered fully into the spirit of mothering. Just like the adventure of life itself! I am the kind of old soul who has always been searching for the meaning of life ever since I was old enough to do so. I have certainly found part of the meaning of life in motherhood. After all, the continuation of life is an integral part of why we are all here.
