If there's something I've learned about motherhood in my adult years, knowledge gained simply from observation of my generation becoming mothers, it is this:
A child can never ever know the extent of work, contemplation, education, sacrifice, and gut-wrenching love of a mother in those early years before you became your own person.
And so, for all the things I'll never know, Mothers,
I thank you in the only way I know how...
and a desire to be a mother myself.
Happy Mother's Day
