Motherhood, it is one of the most fulfilling and beautiful roles I have ever played in my life. Through the ups and downs, the smiles and tears, I have found myself and my purpose.
I recently read a quote that said “It is not joy that makes us grateful. It’s gratitude that makes us joyful.” It is easy to share the bright, shiny, happy moments that come along with it, but there of course are so many challenges! These last two weeks for me personally, have been some of my hardest as a mama. Between both of my kids being sick, my hubby being away and some health scares that landed us in the hospital, I can say I was tested in so many ways. It is these moments though, that truly help define what I feel a mother is.. someone who puts another’s wellbeing above their own, and sacrifices everything to ensure their babies are happy, healthy and loved. These are the times where you see what it means to unconditionally love beyond any measure and to truly feel grateful even in the hardest moments.
Being that it is Mother’s Day this weekend, I just wanted to wish all you mama’s a Happy Mother’s Day, and to all of the women who are still on their way to becoming a mama, or to those have experienced a loss, I am sending you extra love this weekend. Xx
