It's called gratitude, and that's right

Eight years into motherhood. I am so grateful for these little beings in my life.

Evening on the deck

Motherhood to me means joy, pride, exhaustion, laughter, patience... wait a minute, this list sounds lame and trite. It doesn't express being a mom at all. Let's check it with the Beastie Boys, who said it best.

Good times gone and you missed them
What's gone wrong in your system?
Things they bounce, like a Spalding
What'd you think? Did you miss your calling?
It's so free, this kind of feeling
It's like life, it's so appealing
When you've got so much to say
It's called gratitude, and that's right

Good times gone, but you feed it
Hate's grown strong, you feel you need it
Just one thing, do you know you
What you think? That the world owes you?
What's gonna’ set you free
Look inside and you'll see
When you've got so much to say
It's called gratitude, and that's right

Peace Out.
