Motherhood. It’s just so huge. There is so much love around that word: mom.
And motherhood is not something you can pin down. It is every day. In every breath.
It is my life now, and I love it. It is waking up when you want to sleep longer, and cleaning, rocking, feeding and laughing. It is exhausting and wonderful.
All of this, I learned from my mom. Our home was always filled with her love and warmth. She was always attentive and encouraging. She let us make our own mistakes. She wouldn’t let me quit piano lessons. She trusted me and showed me how to care for my younger siblings.
She is the most selfless person I know.
She is so beautiful.
And I can only hope to be half the mother she is.
Thank you, Mom.
