Motherhood: the Dichotomy of Agony and Ecstasy

The moment I knew I was going to be a mother, my life changed. Things that I never thought twice about before suddenly became real, sometimes terrifying – a stranger walking quickly towards your babes . And small things that would make me smile suddenly filled my heart with delight – their first trip to Disneyland. Other things that had become mundane and simple were suddenly morphed into challenging and complex – going to the grocery store with two small children in tow.

As mothers, our lives are forever changed. I’m not the same person I was before them or even before the last one. They quickly grow up and grow us along with them. And for that, I thank my children – thank you Lord for my blessings.

May the days your babies completely fill your heart & soul with joy be more than the ones where they completely drain you!

Happy Mother’s Day
