In Honor of Moms

When I was pregnant with my first baby, I knew being a Mom would be the most amazing experience of my life. I also knew it would be the most difficult challenge, too. My Mother always told me that anything worth doing isn’t easy, so I thought I was prepared for anything.

But nothing can prepare you for becoming a Mom. Really.

It’s harder than you ever thought, yet more rewarding and fulfilling than you could imagine. When you’re sleep-deprived, it can feel like you’re never again going to be normal. But then everything changes; your child reaches a milestone and a mixture of pride and love, like you’ve never known, courses through you.

Seeing my children grow up before my eyes is the most satisfying accomplishment of my life. Nothing else will ever compare. And I will have the grey hairs to prove it – every one of them well-earned!

So, in honor of every Mom… thank you for all the sleepless nights, diaper changing, nose wiping, nurturing, boo-boo kissing, playing, teaching, tidying, cooking, worrying and advice giving. Not only are you a parent but also a friend, disciplinarian, nurse, teacher, housekeeper, chef, psychologist, and most of all…

…the best example of unconditional love.

Happy Mother’s Day
