Mother’s day becomes increasingly more important to me as I grow in my own motherhood and gaining a much deeper appreciation for my own mother…hell, for every mother out there sacrificing for their own flesh.
I can not imagine how it feels to be anything but a mother. I dreamt of it my entire life. I think I would have a gaggle of kids if been granted the green light.
This will be my very first mothers day without all of my baby chicks in my nest. I miss the hiker boy but am so happy and proud of him and would rather him that journey than to be here for one simple day.
A Mother’s Love
I have learned more about life, love, sacrifice, patience, joy and the true meaning of unconditional from my children. The moments I have frozen in my mind of our family. The sweet moments and faces of those dear little faces I can only visit in pictures. A mother’s love.
Growing a child, birthing and feeding a child all from ones own flesh is beyond any human words I can come up with. I feel so blessed and grateful to have this experience.
Moms come in all forms. I am thankful for my mom. She is perfect for me, guiding me, supporting me, just plain loving me unconditionally. Laughing with me, cooking with me, sharing with me…just being my friend today is one of the greatest gifts far beyond anything I could have imagined. I had no idea how important this woman would become to me in my life on so many levels. The sacrifice I now see, and for all that I will probably never know. I love you mom.
My wish this mothers day is that my dear children will grow up to understand and appreciate the life that they have been given with great gratitude. That they can someday look back on their childhood with fond memories and much love. That someday we can all be friends. For now, I remain your mom…..
