It our weekend! The weekend we get acknowledged for all we do 365, 24/7. The one day we get a thank you or job well done for being awesome mommies and in some cases playing that father role.
A mother’s love for her child begins the moment she finds out that a baby is in her womb. A baby has heard the mother’s heart beat from the inside and felt her every emotion, from happiness to sadness. A mother and a child has a bond that is unbreakable.
Mommies, the road of being a mother is not always easy. In fact its probably the hardest road you will ever travel. It starts with sleepless nights with your newborn, to sleepless nights with your teenager and adult children. No matter how old the child is the mother will forever be just as protective as she was with the newborn.
Mommies, our children don’t always turn out the way we imagined. In life we have already learned that happily ever after only appear in story books. But regardless of how our chapters turn, they are always our babies.
We love our children more then we love ourselves and we sacrifice so much for them. Some of us lost our hour glass figures for our babies that we are trying to get back 16 years later lol. We make major sacrifices that only other mothers can understand. I’m not bashing fathers because there are some great fathers. But at least 8/10 times when a baby is sick, mommy is taking care of them. Mommy is carpooling to afterschool practices, mommy is being super woman.
But basically, I just wrote everything that you already knew. Mommies you are awesome. This mommy thing is not easy and there is no manual for this. So it doesn’t matter if you are a Clara Huxtable type mother or a “deadbeat mother”. The point is you are a mother and birthed a child and no one can ever take that from you. Truth be told we have all made bad decisions and mistakes with parenting. The good news is as long as you have breath, you have a shot at getting it right. Our babies need our love, especially in the times we live in. I read a story of a 8 year old taking his own life and it broke my heart. Your kids will always need your love, and support, even when they have their own children.
Mommies, give yourself a pat on the back! You deserve it! Being a mother is the most rewarding, awesome position that you could have. Just think, God trusted a sweet little baby, an entire life to give to you. Motherhood is a pure blessing.
Single mothers that are doing it on your own, I have a message for you. Just know the toughest battles are given to the strongest soldiers. Trust me its hard I know, but your kids notice your double roles. One day it will pay off! You ladies keep up the good work. I know its emotionally, physically and financially draining. But you doing what that man couldn’t. You will get double for your trouble!
So from me, to you, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY LADIES!
