Appreciation for Mothers
Becoming a parent has radically shifted my understanding and appreciation for mothers. From watching the labor and birth of my wife and child, the many tiresome nights of nursing, I know the stress mothers face is tremendous. And yet, when I think of my mom I am filled with a blanket of warmth and gratitude, and when I watch my wife as a mother I am humbled and filled with joy. The magic of mothers, despite the intense challenges, ensures a feeling of safety and unconditional love. My mom nurtured and cared for me as a child, and to this day continues to be there for me 110%. I love you, Mom.
