After spending several days over Christmas with both of my sons, there is a new thing about motherhood that has occurred to me. I look at them and see what wonderful, kind, thoughtful young men they have become. So wholly themselves and comfortable and confident in who they are that I wonder how I had anything at all to do with bringing them into the world. I marvel at this discovery. And feel all the warmer inside when they grin at me and call me mom and hug me.
