Happy Mother’s Day to all those Mothers, soon to be Mothers, and those with Mothers.
Being a mother is such a joy. A few years ago I didn’t think I would ever get to be a mother. For 5 years we tried having kids and thought it would never happen. Every Mother’s Day I would look at all the other Mothers and my heart would long to be one. For me, Mother’s Day was a sad day. Then in 2006 I was blessed with a beautiful little girl.
2006 was my first Mother’s Day. I was filled with so much joy, so much pride. I LOVED being a mommy. I was given a potted flower. It was so pretty. Then in 2009 I became a mommy of another little girl. This year is my first Mother’s Day with her. I feel even more joy this year.
It was a LONG journey to get here. But being a mommy is the greatest. I love every moment with my kids, even the screaming moments. My heart goes out to those who are not mommies yet or can not become mommies. I have been there and know your heart’s longing.
