"Motherhood is by far the most magical, challenging, blissful, emotional, tender, exhausting, and joyous experience of my whole life. (And there are plenty more adjectives to describe this extraordinary journey.) As
a mother of two, I have learned patience, empathy, gratitude, strength, and selflessness (and peripheral vision!), and I feel the most profound love beyond comprehension. It has given me a newfound respect for all moms (particularly single mothers), and of course, for my own mom, whose positive, graceful, and loving nature has inspired, supported, and guided me through the joys and challenges of parenthood."
