In my post yesterday, Anyone Can Be A Mother I shared my feelings regarding the physical work involved in being a mother and how I think anyone can do it. I feel compelled today to expand on those thoughts…. Being a good mother means everything to me and I didn’t mean to sound crass or disrespectful.
Motherhood is an incredible gift and one of the most difficult, thankless jobs there is. I have been given an incredible gift, a child. I have this perfect little person in my life now and it is up to me and his father to teach him as much as we can in order for him to make his way in the world being the best human being he can be. I value this role and embrace it with everything I am.
Knowing more than most how quickly life can turn on a dime, I know how precious just being here is and that not even one second should be taken for granted. I never ever EVER want to take any of these moments with you for granted, or make light of the role I have in your life.
I love my son more than I have ever loved anything in my life. He owns my heart and I do know how tremendously lucky I am to have him and have this wonderful new title of MOTHER.
The best is yet to be.
