Mother's Day

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.
