So why this topic, well I chose the topic because yes I started to write this post - tadahhhhh - right around Mother's Day. A time to reflect on my mothering. Right?! I became a mother the day Alena was born, but became a true fighting, to the core, deeply connected tiger mama when Alena was first admitted to the hospital. She was barely a week old. Until then, it - oddly enough - seemed all unreal, I had never been around babies and then just when I started to adjust we were close to loose it all. It was in those days when I saw Alena fight for her life, which literally brought me down on my knees crying and praying when motherhood became deeply engrained in me. That was the moment when I realized that nothing else but my child(ren), my family are the things that matter most in my life. It is what makes my heart sing, it is what gives me purpose, and strength. My family - yes, that includes Ron - make me laugh, do silly things, pull me up, and make me do things I would have never thought possible.
