Wow! Am I really that old? Time flies when you are living life. Today is the day that marks the birth of my first son, Matthew, and also my birth. The birth of a mother.
I can't say that it has been a smooth ride. Raising tiny humans is no easy task. I would never change a thing. When I became a mother, I learned about unconditional love, commitment, and so much more.
Now, I say you can call me Nana B, or Nana Doula. I am a grandmother, a crone, a wise woman with lots to learn and lots to share.
Christmas is always a strange and confusing Holiday for me. I mean, from what I understand, it is the celebration of the birth of Jesus, who many consider "the son" of God. I have read that Jesus was born in the spring. I have also read that Christmas has origins in the Pagan tradition. And, Jesus was born a Jew.
In the USA Christmas is all about a buying frenzy. People go crazy buying gifts for others, some of whom they don't even like.
