Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful moms out there! Moms are so fantastic, aren’t they? I just can’t even fathom the incredible amount of constant fear and overwhelming love a new mom has. So. Much. Pressure. Those are small people you are in charge of. Small, spongey minds that soak up everything they see, hear, and experience. Pretty much everything they’ll ever believe and know will be from you. No big deal. Then they grow up and as a mom all you can hope for is that you didn’t mess up too badly and that they are happy. Goodness gracious.
I’m 26 and pretty confident I’ve never loved my mom more. She really nailed that whole mom thing. When I was a little girl I wanted to be just like her when I grew up. Now that I’m “grown up” I pray to be half the mom, friend, and daughter that she is. I’ve got a long way to go. Thank goodness I’ve got a good teacher.
Mom, you are simply the best. I love you and I miss you!
