I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings about being a mother. I really never thought I would have a child, and when I discovered in March 2001, I was pregnant, I went through a myriad of emotions. I had a very content and happy life but never could have imagined how much more content and happy I could be, by being a mother. My son has brought so much more to my life and I couldn’t imagine my life without him.
I could never have dreamed how beautiful the sound of my son saying mommy or mom. It truly sounds like music to my ears. Not to mention, “I love you mommy”, that still floors me. When he looks at me, I feel humbled, because I know he sees me as someone much more than I am. I don’t know if I could ever be the person my son sees when he looks at me.
I am proud to celebrate Mother’s Day this year, because I am so proud of my son. However, I do feel that every day is Mother’s Day! I know being a mom can seem like a thankless and underappreciated job sometimes, but look into your children’s eyes (unless you have tweens and teens, because they may not appreciate you right now, but they will again), and see yourself the way they do.
I wish all mothers a Happy Mother’s Day! If you would like to share your feelings about motherhood or if you have a special or funny Mother’s Day story, share it with us. Hope to hear from you! Enjoy Life!!!
