I started this blog 3 years ago on Mother’s Day to share my voice as I journeyed through motherhood.
There have been days I absolutely wanted to give up; being a mother was just way too hard. Days I felt discouraged and felt like I was doing a horrible job as a mom. All too often, moms don’t really share how they truly feel about their lives for fear of being judged. Or at least that’s how I feel.
I always dreamed of being a mom. I knew there was no manual of how to raise kids but I assumed it would be like my mom parenting me.
Today on Mother’s Day, I remind myself and all other moms there is no perfect mom, no perfect kid, and no perfect family.
Enjoy the small moments, take lots of pictures, chill out and stop stressing out, make funny faces, laugh a lot, pray a lot, enjoy each other.
If it were not for my children, I wouldn’t be able to celebrate today! I love my little people and although I tend to get upset over their behavior and things they do, I wouldn’t not want to be a mom; their mom!
So, as Mother’s Day comes to an end, love yourself mom; in spite of mistakes you’ve made or your kids have made. Love unconditionally!!!
Happy Mother’s Day!
