Musings on my first Mother's Day

I was never a princess kind of little girl. I never dreamed of getting married, having babies or walking down a catwalk. Instead, I slid down anthills, went foraging for wild fruit and floated down rivers on tire inner tubes.

But this day, on my first Mother's Day, I find myself married, with a baby of my very own and being a wannabe 'fashionista' as I sort my image out post pregnancy.

This journey called life, it takes you on roads you were certain of, roads you never dreamed of and roads you weren't too sure of. With every bend there comes another twist in your story and with every pothole an unexpected shock. But on every road there is always a horizon ahead. Keep travelling forward.
