Mother’s Day is a day that has changed and meant something different for me every year depending on what stage of life I’m in. But one thing I know is that after becoming a mom, I have a deeper appreciation for my own mother. This year especially, I understand all her worries, sacrifices and hard work she went through as a mom, even though she made it seem effortless. The love I have for my children is indescribable, but with all that love comes fear. I am in charge of shaping and molding these 2 little girls and I don’t have an instruction book to guide me in this crazy world. When they were babies, I could protect them from everything, but now that they are in school, they have so many outside influences. My role as a mom is far more complex now, I have many hats that I have to put on daily. But then I have to stop and realize that I can do this because I have such a great mother that molded me into the person I am today. (I too lucked out with a great mother in law, that I seek advice from often). I GET to nurture, love and create security for them….I get to mother them. I am also blessed to be surrounded my other amazing mamas that I admire, respect and look up to daily.
So today on Mother’s Day, I know that my girls won’t fully understand the love I have for them and that’s okay, they will get it one day. But I hope they understand that I am always here for them, and that they always feel safe and secure. I had an awesome Mother’s Day: I hit the gym, we had hibachi and as always over ate the Strawberries and Cream Bundt Cake!!
Seriously this is all we got for photos……:/
The school gifts are the best, they always make me tear up.
Here is part of Gracie’s….I’m apparently good at jump roping;)
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone.
