I know that motherhood is not meant for everyone but wow was it meant for me. Ever since I was a little girl I remember wanting to have two children, preferably girls. Fast forward lots and lots of years, I was fortunate enough to meet the person who made me a better person, my best friend in the whole wide world: Keith. My husband and the father of my two beautiful girls.
To say that a day goes by that I am not amazed by my children or my love for them would be an understatement. I am choked up right now thinking of all the reasons why I love being a mother and why I love my children so much. Sure it’s not perfect, I am learning as I go. I never did this before. I get angry. I yell. I get frustrated. I could never home school. I appreciate my mother more and more all the time. This is tough. We are raising two girls and need to show them how strong they can be. I had an amazing role model, my mom worked really, really hard and raised my sister and I to be self sufficient, intelligent women. I want the same for my girls.
BUT as challenging as being a mom can be – the daunting responsibility of giving them a great foundation – it is the most incredible experience I have ever had. I look into their gorgeous blue eyes and my heart over flows with this love that I can’t describe. As they grow I am amazed by them every single day. How much they have to give, their generosity, their humor, their caring, their intelligence, their sweetness, their love for me, Keith, each other and those around them (including our four legged friends too).
I remember my mom saying that one day I would understand how much she loved my sister and I. I got it the first day and I am realizing it more and more with each passing year. I look around and have to say that I couldn’t ask for anything more. I love my life and everything about it. I told Keith when I first met him that I was the luckiest woman in the whole world.
All these years later I am still the luckiest woman in the whole world and I don’t see that changing any time soon. Thanks girls for allowing me to love being a mom so much.
