Today is Mother's Day... and I'm a first time mommy on Mother's Day. Wow. It certainly feels awkward for someone to be celebrating me on a holiday (besides my birthday, of course.) I don't think Girl's Day really counts. We didn't do much today... spent time with family, then came home and took a nap. I suppose my Mother's Day present was a nap; I like to think it was a well-deserved nap. hehe.
Today makes me appreciate my mother even more. I'm lucky enough to have her close by whenever I need advise or help. My mom, however, raised me an ocean away from her own mother, and back then, international phone calls were a rarity. I call my mom almost every day and ask her what she thinks, even if I know the answer. The feeling I get when I call my mom is like the feeling you get when you are eating a warm cup of chowder on a cold day: Comfortable. Being a mom on Mother's Day makes me realize how much more appreciation I should show my mom because of what she did for me. I LOVE YOU MOM! You're the best! :-) ありがとう.
