She Never Existed Before: Mother's Day 2008


"The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new." -Rajneesh



"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." -Elizabeth Stone



"Thou art thy mother's glass, and she in thee
Calls back the lovely April of her prime."
-William Shakespeare

What a gorgeous family!
Thank you for the peek into your personal life and the wonderful beings you raised with Tim.
I bet it is hard to imagine how fast the time has all gone.
Happy Mother's Day.

Happy Mothers' Day! I love the photos of you and your family and the quotes were beautiful. I like to think that I stayed the same person when I became a mother, but added a new dimension - as the quote says, "the mother is born". Nothing could possibly prepare me for this part of my life and that's part of what makes it so wonderful - the continuous journey and learning. Some hard and heartbreaking, some joyous and wonderful but never a dull moment :-)

Linda and Kate,

I hope your Mother's Day festivities were as happy as mine. Yes, time has gone quickly, but each stage brings its own rewards and satisfaction.


Jackie,

It was lovely to share part of the day with you and your Mom. And thanks for taking the Red off my hands!
