Many of us dreamed of becoming a mother long before we ever became one. As little girls we would play with baby dolls & nurture our stuffed animals.
My mother always used to tell me “You’ll never know what being a mother is really like until you hold your child in your arms for the very first time. It’s then that your heart overflows with an unfathomable love for a tiny piece of yourself.”
Motherhood has many faces. There are times of joy, pain, happiness, anger, forgiveness, love, patience and courage. But the one “face” we all wear as mothers each and every day is commitment. When you bring a child into the world, your world changes. You realize that this tiny bundle is relying on you for each and every need 24/7.
As our children grow, so does our role of motherhood. It strengthens, deepens and changes day after day, month after month, year after year. Even when your child leaves home, your guidance remains present in their lives.
The many faces of motherhood are a gift…from start to finish. Treasure each one, mom.
