What it Means to be a Mother

I’m going to keep this short and sweet, because Mother’s Day is for spending time with mothers. I think this is something we can all relate to, considering all the incredible and selfless mothers in our lives.

My grandmother has been jotting down recollections from her childhood – specifically about her mother. My Hungarian grandmother was a force to be reckoned with. I feel like I truly knew her, although she passed when I was 4. I feel a connection since, from what I have been told, she was also a determined and stubborn Pisces woman.

As seen in my grandmother’s journal:


“Mom always took the back of the chicken. I never realized why until I was much older. That’s the only piece that doesn’t have meat. She would leave the better pieces for us”


Mothers are gifts, cherish them. Happy Mother’s Day!
