I am a 46 year old mother of two. By most accounts, I have it all. And although I truly believe I am one of the luckiest people in the world, surrounded by love, success and happiness, I complain. A lot. Maybe it is my keen ability to identify the absurd in life. Or perhaps it is a deeper calling for liberty and justice for all. More likely, it is the fact that my day to day routine with my two amazing children is a lot harder than I ever dreamed it would be. Whatever the case may be, the crystal clear afterthoughts are when I am able to savor how rich family life is and what a gift I have been given. After the chaos subsides.
I hope that in sharing these stories, we can all share a laugh and come to realize how an imperfect ride can lead us to what is most perfect – memories made with our families.
