Yes, it was a day to celebrate mothers everywhere, especially mine, but not a day that I could really understand.
I get it now. I recently realized that Mother's Day is more important to me than celebrating my own birthday. (My birthday has always been an excuse for a week-long celebration!)
My feelings toward my own mother have changed since becoming a mother myself. It is overwhelming to realize how much she loves me. I am forever grateful for everything she has done (and still does!) for me.
My wish on this Mother's Day is for Leila to feel the love that I feel...forever.
Leila and I are so lucky to have such wonder mothers in our lives!
