We’re on a mission to make the most out of life—we believe in pursuing progression and making time for the things that bring real value into the world.
As we lean into those closest to us, we celebrate all mothers and those who embody care and kindness in all of our lives. In light of Mother’s Day, we interviewed Grece Ghanem on motherhood and how it has shaped her view of time.
What time were you born? What time was your daughter born?
I was born on December 18th 1964 at about 3:00 AM and my daughter was born at 6:00 AM sharp.
What's one significant moment from your childhood that you’ve applied to motherhood?
Happiness & curiosity.
Describe motherhood in your own words.
As a mother I try to provide my daughter with insights into important things in life to try to make her life as happy and fulfilling as possible. I try to teach her the importance of family, to use her intelligence all the time, to listen to her emotions and try to adhere to her values.
How has becoming a mother changed the way you think about time?
As a mother I realize that time passes by quickly, this is why it is so important to cherish every single minute. It becomes more about the quality than the quantity of time spent together.
What is the most challenging part of motherhood?
I believe it’s to try and find a balance. As much as I want to protect my daughter I have to give her room to experiment and try to find herself.
What is the most rewarding part of motherhood?
I appreciate every single minute I watch my daughter grow—I cherish these minutes. In good and bad times I just love being her mother.
