Patiently Waiting / by Kelly Kirlin

In a couple of weeks, my good friend will become a mother for the first time. A big congratulations to Alex and Sophie as they plunge into parenthood. Its incredible. In the past year I have come to fully understand the meaning of "motherhood". Boy has it been quite a learning curve! I have more respect for my mother because of it, and appreciate life in a way I never did before. There's no arguing that the miracle of creating life and giving birth is truly remarkable, however, so is the tremendous amount of work that it requires to be a mom. Especially if you are a working mom! Whoa. Nothing can quite prepare you for that. Here's to all the mom's out there - thank you for creating life, for nurturing life, and for being true family superhero's! We love you and may you have the most lovely mother's day of all this year....
