This year, my Mother’s Day was not only on the 9th but actually a week long. At my daughter’s pre-school, they’ve been making cards and tiny gifts the kids will give their Mom’s for that special day. I thought it was really sweet when I went to pick her up and her basket was full of these cute little stuff from pictures, doodles, cards to frames. The best gift though is seeing her learn, build confidence and make friends… At least for a “new” Mom like me, that matters most way more than any thing else.

I am so grateful that my Husband and my daughter think May 9 is my day. But for me, I still have a long way to prove if I really deserve one. I am not perfect but I try to be better everyday. I know I still have a lot of things to learn…
