Moms

ParentsConnect put together a Mother's Day montage of photos, which I'm linking to here not only because I'm on staff there, but also because there's a shot of me and N from a couple years back just a bit shy of halfway through. It's one of my favorite photos ever.

I have nothing to say about motherhood today that hasn't been said many times before, and many times better. It all comes down to this: It's worth it. Every single moment of every single day is worth it. Every single moment of sadness and every single moment of worry and every single moment of resentment and every single moment of fear is worth it. Every single moment of joy and every single moment of pride and every single moment of laughter and every single moment of contentment is worth it. All of it. My two children make it all worth while.

Thank you, Em and N, for making me a mother.

Happy (belated?) Mother's Day, TC. I'm so glad to have "met" you this year...
