When I was 15, I received a special blessing. In it, it talked about how most of my gifts and talents as a person wouldn’t present themselves until I became a mother. Well let me tell you…. Being their mom is HARD. I cry now. I was never a crier. And now I cry almost daily. Being their mom is exhausting. It’s stressful, it can be infuriating, my patience is tested all day every day, and time to myself has completely vanished. I even have to sneak away to the bathroom (usually without success, sorry TMI). Oh, and I yell all the time now. I’m so tired of hearing my own voice. Like so tired of it. But, being their mom is the most amazing thing I’ve ever been blessed to do. Being their mom is the most fun, rewarding and fulfilling thing I’ve ever done. I love them more than I will ever to be able to express. I’m so, so grateful for my babies.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the amazing moms, new moms, the soon-to-be moms, the biological mom’s, the foster moms, the adoptive mom’s, the step-mom’s, the grandmoms and god-mom’s, the mom’s whose little’s are all grown up, and to the mom’s who won’t get to hold their children until the eternities! Thank you for all of the work you do! It may go unnoticed at times and unappreciated almost every day, but you’re rocking it!
