Me and my mom when I was 5 hours old
Before I had a child, I didn't know how excited or thrilled I would be when my child mastered new skills. I also didn't know how fearful I would be of things like fevers. Or how much pain I would feel over scrapes, bruises or kids who can be mean. Being a parent is truly having a small part of you walk outside of your body.
Jack and I, right after his birth
I am so thankful that I have been blessed to experience the first years of motherhood through Jack – the good and the bad. I am thankful that my own mother gave me life and experienced the good and the bad as well. I feel blessed to be surrounded my so many wonderful mother figures – from my own mother to my mother-in-law, grandmothers, aunts, sister and friends. They have all taught me so much.
Happy Mother's Day!
