WHAT IS LOVE TO YOU?
Love is the one word that overwhelmingly resounds when I think about my family. My "Love" makes me selfless, kind, and brave.
THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT IN MOTHERHOOD?
After we brought our daughter home from the hospital, I had my first moment alone with her. It was finally just the two of us after being surrounded by people for days. I held my baby in her quiet bedroom and wanted to sing her a lullaby (because I felt like that's what moms are supposed to do), but I couldn't think of any in my sleep-deprived state. So, I softly sang the one song that came to mind--Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World". As I looked down and sang to the little person cuddled up in my arms, I felt like a mother for the very first time, and the world did indeed feel so very wonderful.
