Price of Admission

I read this beautiful article this morning by my column writing idol Mary Elizabeth Williams.
It moved me so much I thought I should share it with you.

I spent my mother's day taking turns with my husband napping.  I was so tired.  Like many holidays, I'm always a little leery about mother's day.  I am conscious that it is not always a day of celebration for many women. I am also conscious that it might not always be so sweet and uncomplicated as it is right now.  For now, I am savouring the waffles my daughter made me, and the sweet little "doll show" that only cost a stick of gum to get into and the beautiful card that my son made me.  Inside his card, he wrote (with his teacher's help) "I like to catch raccoons with my mom."  Me too, honey, me too.
