I love my mother. I love my grandmothers. I love my mother in law. I love my sisters in law. I love my aunts, and cousins and my nieces who will be the next generation of mothers. I love my daughter. I love my girl friends. I love Mother nature. I love Mother earth. I love Motherhood. I love the Mother lode chocolate cake at Claim Jumper. I love being a woman, and I love being surrounded by many amazing women in my life who share with me the ups and downs of estrogen. I love being loved by a man, and I love being his woman. I love that I can say love 18 times in one blog entry, and I can do this because I am a woman. I can also watch chick flicks, cry for no reason, and spend too much money on accessories. I can drown my sorrows in chocolate, soak my feet in fizzy water, wear hot pink, and sigh over flowers. I can proudly display pasta picture frames on my fridge, and wear baseball photo buttons to Little League games. I can nurture, teach, play, guide, mentor, taxi, cook, clean, listen, love, cuddle, and wake up each day to do it all again. Here's to womanhood, motherhood, and the day that reminds us that although we are far from perfect, we are perfectly content being women.
