Here’s wishing a Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful mom and all the other great mothers out there. Of course I think I have the greatest mom in the world and am not prejudiced at all in the matter. So there.
For the first time, I get to celebrate the day as a mom myself! And I will be honest…this weirds me out big time. Its just so bizarre to think that I’m a mother. I mean, yeah, I’ve been one for several months now but that term, “mother” seems so loaded with connotations of responsibility and maturity and all this other stuff that I’m not sure I possess. But I guess I must. Somehow.
Now that I’m a mom I can better appreciate and relate to the things my own mother went through having and raising kids. At least up to the 9 month old point of the whole process. I wasn’t one of those little girls who dreamed of having “children of my own someday” and for the first several years of our marriage, hubs and I were not on that track and did not plan to be. But things change, priorities shift and biological clocks continue to tick tock. I don’t regret becoming a mom but I will be honest and say that it has changed everything in my life. Everything. Some of it for the better but honestly, not all of it. I’ve had a difficult time adjusting to it all. It’s still something I’m working on.
That said, I love Sam more than anything and will do everything in my power to make sure she knows that her whole life. She is a joy and a blessing in my life. I know this without a doubt. Some things are bigger than ourselves and more important than anything we have done before. Being a mother, in the fullest and best sense of the word, is one of those things.
Happy Mother’s Day!
