This was something that I always longed for.
Before my children came alone - I was afraid I would never be.
July 26, 1994, when I was 39 I had my son. What a joy! Then June 16, 1997 I had my daughter - I was 42 almost 43.
I know that I was inspiration to a friend of mine who recently had twins at 40 something. Second marriage for her. I was thrilled for her. If I could, I would have another. I loved being pregnant, feeling life within me. I loved the baby scent, and they way they would cuddle with you. Guess I will need another pet when my daughter leaves the nest for college.
It was a grand day - Mothers day. My partner took me and my children to a brunch. We laughed and enjoyed each others company.
I am truly blessed to be a mom - and now that things are very different -- I am even more blessed that my children find joy in remembering Mothers Day and sharing it with me.
