When your mother was being formed in your grandmother's stomach you were being formed as well as an egg a part of the equation for your life. Remember, women/moms are born with all the eggs they are ever going to have, and they don't make any new eggs during their lifetime. Women/moms are born with approximately two million eggs in their ovaries, but about eleven thousand of them die every month prior to puberty. You and I were one of those two million eggs.

When your mother was born she went through puberty with a part of you. If she participated in the civil rights era she participated with a part of you. You and I were there as part of an equation to life and your father determined your sex. You and I beat all odds that were against us multiple times.

Out of those two million eggs you and I escaped death every month from being one of the 11 thousand eggs. Of those two million eggs, you were released at a moment to make contact with your other half carried by your father's sperm. You survived all of the diseases, accidents, and natural disasters to this point in your mother's ovaries and life. Think about it. If your mother is 70 or 100 years old, a part of you is that old. A part of you rode in a model T Ford with her. You were nourished from a colored water fountain. You even faced the same harm as your mother regardless of who your father was to be.

Your mother carried you with her through thorns and snares, rains and pains but out of 2 million potential souls you and I made it to say thank you mom. And you thought it was all because of one celebratory moment.
