Motherhood is a precious gift from God, a blessing that changes your whole world and makes you rethink all your future plans. It’s challenging and hectic yet joyful and filled with love.
The bond between a mother and her kids is beyond what words can describe, the amount of love that radiates from her can take away all the world’s sorrow. This love shows in every single thing she does, from the moment she wakes up until the moment she sleeps (if she ever does).
Her tremendous love for her children is what drives her to make miracles just for her kids’ happiness and wellness. It’s a precious form of love that cannot be measured nor explained and it is forever sacred.
Being a mother automatically comes with great responsibility, which leads to one important thought: “Wow! My mom must be some kind of a super woman, I can’t believe she did all this for me!”
You suddenly realize what your parents (specially your mom) go through to get you this far and how much they suffered through out your evolution to help provide anything you wish for.
We all appreciate our parents and what they offered us our entire lives, still we don’t fully get the whole picture until we are literally in their shoes. In my case, I felt like I wanted to go kiss my mom’s precious hands and tell her how much I love her thousands of times, and that won’t be slightly enough compared to what she offered and STILL offers to my life.
One of motherhood’s greatest blessings is the ability to look forward to the future, to be hopeful. Seeing your kids grow in front of your eyes and transitioning from one phase to another does exactly that.
You always have a birthday coming up that you need to prepare for, a good school you need to pick or a huge wedding to plan. Becoming a mother redesigns your future in a great way. You no longer feel bored because you always have something to do, something to look forward to.
Suddenly, everything makes perfect sense and life is buzzier, fuller and more exciting. There’s a little fella who needs someone to guide him/her through the future and all the surprises that comes with it and that’s a full time job!
There’s this hidden personality built within each woman that never pops up until she becomes a mom! You do the strangest things, things that are against your usual nature, you worry about things that never mattered to you before, you observe more, even though your old self doesn’t pay attention to details, you get to know YOU better when you become a mother.
You change diapers, feed and give baths naturally as if you’ve been doing it for years. You find your mommy character taking over you effortlessly, this mommy personality was there all along, you were BORN with it, it simply gets activated when its role comes!
KIDS COME FIRST, that’s the typical mom’s code. Her children are the number one priority in her life: “They should eat first”, “I should shop for them first” and the list could go on forever!
Most of the time, mommies forget what they need, whether it’s emotional or materialistic, daily necessities, quality time with friends or any sort of entertainment, they will always prioritize their kids’ needs and postpone anything else.
It all comes down to the well-being and happiness of her precious little ones. Moms would die for their kids any given day and they will happily do it and that is the true meaning of sacrifice.
The Little Things
Those little creatures are simply overwhelming when they are around. You want to hug and squeeze them, swarm them with kisses all day. You will never get tired of their cuteness when they say big words or sing a song they newly learned in school – it can sometimes make you tear up, their smile lights up your world and fixes all your troubles.
Those very special cuddly moments when you put them to bed and tell them a bedtime story they love and they ask to hear it over and over again. Oh! And when they learn how to properly express themselves and you find your little one kissing your hands, chin and cheeks and whispers with his little voice, “I love you, Mommy” – you then fully realize that it was all worth while, those little things that give life meaning and makes you feel complete.
Whether you are a working or a full time mom, know that you are awesome, you are an inspiration to many, your love is like an endless river and your infinite care could fix anything. You are blessed with the greatest, most important role on this planet and you are so damn good at it.
Appreciate and respect your moms, make sure they know how much you love them as this will help you become a good mother yourself. Enjoy the journey of motherhood and create special memories with your little ones, they grow so fast! Don’t feel that you are missing out on anything, you are the real deal and you’re on the right track.
