Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers and those WITH mothers. . .

What a special day!  A time for us to  thank our mothers, reflect on our childhoods, and for those of us who are mothers. . . to savor our children.  I am blessed with three children and am amazed by their unique constellation of personality traits, quirks and talents. 

I chose  the career of “family medicine with obstetrics” because it is energizing, engrossing, emotional and truly amazing.  I considered obstetrics during medical school, but I wanted to keep following  the mother and baby.  I counsel  couples  through their pregnancy and am present to help with the birth of  their baby and becoming a family.  Those first few weeks of a newborn’s life are so challenging to the new parents.  I love to hold their hands, answer the lists of questions.  It is a delight and an honor. 

Rajneesh says “The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never.  A mother is something absolutely new.”  Well said.

How fantastic.  Enjoy what you have.  Revel in your life.

Happy Mother’s Day to all.
