I've been considering what makes a good mother as I am about to embark on this journey myself, something that is at once very natural, but also fairly jarring. I reflect on what a wonderful mother my own has been. I know I won the jackpot: to grow up with someone so loving, self-sacrificing, humble and giving. Someone with endless amount of compassion and kindness. I hope I can carry even a modicum of her actions into my own journey. I will happily wrap up our little nugget in this tiny sweater and think of her.
