Growing up I remember fond memories with my mother. Although she wasn’t home a lot because of her work being a college physician, she always made a point to spend quality time with us. I’m sure she’d rather be home most of the time, however, when duty calls, she had to respond to it even at 2 in the morning. This is one of the reasons why early on I decided not to pursue medicine even when my parents wanted me to follow in her footsteps, or be in the medical profession for that matter. Ironically, I ended up being a nurse. At least I don’t get called at 2 a.m., and with a 3 – 4 day 12-hour work schedule, I get to spend some time with my kids.

I’m sure you have fond memories of you mother too. I’m sure you can remember the joys and pains you caused her has you grew up into adulthood. I know she had her fair share with me, and if not for her love and patience, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

So to all you mothers out there I’d like to salute you and greet you a Happy Mother’s day. There is nothing so dear, so sweet, so nurturing as a mother’s love.
