as a mother i find that a lot of things that belong to me are not really mine. let me explain! the first moment that i specificaly remember was my 23rd birthday. i was 8 months pregnant with my first child and for MY last birthday as a motherless person, one of my best friends gave me a baby blanket. now don't get me wrong. i was grateful and i chersh the gift. she had spent a lot of time on it and it was a wonderful gift. however it was not really mine.
