Mother’s Day. The sacrifice mothers make is truly a great one. Daily comforts like sleeping, eating, showering, and personal space are last in line when raising a child…and even more so with multiple children. Motherhood is a 24/7 gig and I have it on good authority that it never ends. As a mother, you are constantly thinking of your children. It doesn’t matter if they are in another room, state, or continent…we worry all of the time. Are they happy? Are they in need of anything? Are they making friends at school? I admit to driving past the boys’ school yard to see if they were alone at recess. As a mother we don’t want to see our children struggle with anything and it breaks our hearts to see them as anything, but blissfully happy. It is today that we all should be truly thanking the women in our lives for all we know they did for us, and the immense amount of love and concern they had when we weren’t looking. The silent plea that each mother whispers daily that our children will be safe, loved, and watched over, is one that every mother is familiar with. Thank your mothers, grandmothers, mother-in-laws, sisters and every other women who contributed to the person you are today. Without these women, our world would be a much darker place.
It has been so fun to have Natalie join the ranks of motherhood. She is a great mother and I love raising our children in the same town. Happy Mother’s Day Mom and Nat!
