an ode to mothers

"When you're a mother, you'll understand." So my mom told me on many an occasion. I'll be the first to admit that I often rolled my eyes at that statement—sometimes I even laughed. But now I know that I just didn't get it. Being a mother is unfathomable until you're actually one yourself. Nearly two years into the toughest and most rewarding job I've ever had, and I am barely beginning to grasp what motherhood really is. It's not for sissies, I'll tell you that much!

This weekend, I'll be raising a glass to all the mothers in the world, especially my own. You inspire and amaze me.
