What does motherhood mean to you?
I had my own idea of motherhood growing up. Ladies often shared with me their motherhood experiences, especially when I got pregnant with our son. But nothing they ever told me could prepare me for the duty of motherhood.
Being a mom isn’t easy. It’s the hardest job I’ve ever had. It requires me to put the needs of someone else in front of my own. It requires me to be on duty 24-7-365. There are rough days, but the good days definitely outweigh the bad.
In my opinion, being a mom is the most rewarding job you can have.
Even if you don’t have children of your own, you can still be an important mother figure to children around you. Everyone needs a good mother figure.
Mother’s Day was very special for me this year. It started off with a wonderful breakfast that my husband prepared for me. His homemade pancakes are the best!
After church, my husband and son ran off to their secret hiding place to retrieve their Mother’s Day gifts. Soon afterwards, my son came running to me with flowers in his hand, saying, “Flowers, Flowers, Flowers!”
He gave me the flowers with a big grin on his face. I was so happy! My big boy was using his words and he understood what was going on.
As some of you may already know, my son has a speech delay. It’s a big deal whenever he uses his words and it was so nice that it happened on Mother’s Day!
It’s truly a blessing to be a mom.
So what about you? How was your Mother’s day?
