In honor of Mother's Day
I am one of the lucky ones to have a mother who loved me so much…and still does! My guest, Connection Messenger* Annette Petrick tells the touching story of the moment when her grown daughter finally understood the depth of her mother's love: when she held her own bundle of joy.

My daughter was married at 17. Their plan was to have babies immediately and frequently. The universe had other plans. When she called me, 17 years later, complaining that her clothes didn’t seem to fit, I crossed my fingers. Could it be?
She was with child.
After waiting so long, she and her husband were overjoyed. During her pregnancy, she plied me with questions about what it would be like. They had long forgotten their dreams of parenthood and were relearning all over again. That’s how we happened to have the conversation related in this story. The prediction was a very special moment. And her confirmation when it came true was even more enchanting.
