It's hard to give motherhood a meaningful name, maybe there is no way to describe the journey after all. It's not just a sacrifice, it is joy, pain, struggle, happiness, hugs, kisses, commitment, disappointment, anger, awe, loyalty, forgiveness, acceptance....all rolled into one. To the wonderful boys that I have helped shape, this journey as your mother is something that I will remember to the day I die...and maybe until then, I will not forget.
It has changed me, made me a better person, helped me see the world for what it is and to accept reality. I have seen the worst that life has to offer, as a mother, and I have also seen the best of life.
And I know I am not alone experiencing all the above-mentioned feelings.
If you are a mother of a child, teen, adult, pet or all of the above, congratulations for having come this far. You're doing great! Happy Mother's Day! You're a rock star!
