Mothers' Day

When I was small, I knew a mother's love
to be deep
and sure
and easy.

Now that I am a mother, I understand 
it is boundless,
and exhilarating,
and all-consuming.

Happy Mother's Day
to the woman who is my mother
and the babies who made me one.


  1. Beautiful! I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day with your boys!

  2. Thanks, Melissa! I did have a great Mother's Day :-) I hope you did, too!
