Mother's day!

As I lay in bed this morning, waking up slowly, having dreamy thoughts about how it will be years before I will be able to laze in bed late having dreamy thoughts
As I listened to the sounds of Jono leaving and coming back with groceries for a spectacular french toast breakfast with fresh mango and strawberries
As I watched the sun fill up the bedroom and contemplated my life as it has been, as it is and as it will be
I realized in a flood of joy that what I have is all I've ever wanted.
I am truly happy. From the heart and the soul and from the mysterious poetry of my DNA which has sung and spun and whispered and hollered it's desires from the beginning...

When I came downstairs and saw the flowers, found the 70 degree air, was kissed and loved from the inside and the outside all at once
When I got my very first ever mother's day greetings from the world
When I looked at the computer and found mother's day stories, experiences and wishes from other mother's who I love so much
I realized in a flood of pleasure that my fortune is great to be where I am, when I am, surrounded by the very best of people, the very best of wonderful mamas & the very best of loving friends and family.

I wish the best for all of us. The sons and the daughters who become the mamas and the papas...
And I'm grateful for the help and the reminders that the ups and downs are a part of it all. (wink, wink Cami!)


  1. you are so blessed because, as I have been telling you since you were a child, you are beautiful inside and out.... and now you can understand the immense well of joy that you have given me thru the years, and perhaps you can now appreciate it when I state that you are the love of my life... no love can compare to the love that a mother has for her child .. I believe it is the only unconditional love one can experience during one's time on this earth. You already are a wonderful mother, and Natanya knew what she was doing when she chose you to bring her to this planet... She is a smart girl already, she knows the ocean of love she will receive from all of us who are so grateful for her miracle

  2. Happy Mother's day

  3. Firstly, I am making french toast with mango and strawberries soonly. Wow, I had so many feelings reading this. Mother's day was so much fun pregnant - though Craig felt he didn't have to celebrate it because technically I wasn't a mother yet... Yes, he still lives - she needed a Papa, right? Haha, yes! the ups and downs (hadn't thought of it like that, doh!)
