Being One On Mother's Day

Mother's Day is almost over and man, am I ever glad. My mom used to call it 'black sunday' because she never got the appreciation she sought when we were kids.
As for myself, being a mother, I've lowered my expectations and they have always been exceeded! Actually, I never cease to be amazed that I have children, that I am a mother. This was never the road I saw for myself when I was young. I *knew* in an inherent way that I would have children, but I never sought this family ideal of marriage and children and being a MOTHER.
I can't say what any of this means, but I do know what I love most in this world are my kids and MK. Shamelessly I have tears in my eyes as I type this because I feel as if in the last half of my life I finally got it right, found what I sought, show love the way I should, and everyone seems ok with it.
