on mother’s day

12 May

Thinking of my mother.  Still.

In many ways, Mother’s Day is easier now that I have almost two daughters of my own.  And I can think of and celebrate my mother–she really was the best.  But I wish she could be here, know our family as it is now.

Happy Mother’s Day!  I have too many shining maternal examples in my life to recognize, so know that I am grateful for and inspired by you, constantly.

Thank you again, Yana & Chita…and for the sweet post.

    My Grand-mère sends her best wishes for your delivery! I told her yesterday about Gunda’s impending new grandchild and she was thrilled. 🙂

    I don’t know how you balance this and med school! I am almost done with my second year and am so amazed at the women who raise children while in school. You are incredible!! I love your blog!!

      Hi Christine,

      Thank you so much for your kind words! I can’t say I always do it (“balance” 🙂 ) well, but I very much appreciate the encouragement! Good luck to you in your med school career–in my experience, it got a lot better/more rewarding after second year!

      take care,

    […] other when we get one of those random “call your mother” comments from strangers.  I think it will always be hard, and my heart goes out to the many for whom I’m sure this day is much, much harder.  […]
