I want to take the time to extend my gratitude for not only my mom but for all the moms around the world. Mothers have the hardest job in the world but never clock in, and never get paid. The only reward that we receive is that we get little human best friends to walk beside us for the rest of our journey in life.
God really handpicked the best mom for me.
Now that I’m older I reflect back on my own childhood and I’m amazed how my mother got through motherhood alone as a single parent. She did a good dam job. I know you will read this mom (because you are my biggest cheerleader and are always rooting for me) so I just want to say I LOVE YOU from the bottom of my heart.
I thank you for loving me at my worst and for raising me, supporting me and encouraging me to be the women I am today. You stayed solid even when life got complicated with our own relationship. No matter what storm I was going through I knew I could always depend on my momma.
Every mother isn’t built for motherhood.
Motherhood is 24/7 job of loving and protecting your children from all the harm in this world through challenges and pressures. Raising kids is a huge responsibility but God has chosen YOU to parent your kids.
Whether your a first time mom, second time mom, or rainbow mom from the minute you find out your pregnant your little human takes over your mind, body and soul.
Pregnancy teaches you pain, strength, compassion, endurance and how gassy we can be. Childbirth teaches you love at first sight. While motherhood humbles you, but at the same time it lets you know that your indestructible. It can also increase your love for your own mother and give you purpose.
Kids teach us so much about what is important. There are certain things about life that you will not learn unless you become a parent. I sincerely believe that I wouldn’t even be who I am now if I wasn’t a mom.
A mothers love is endless and unconditional.
Shout out to all the REAL mothers out there. Anyone can give birth to a child but that doesn’t necessarily make you a mother. You can be on your 10th child and still not know how to be a mom.
A mother has a special connection with a child even if it’s not their own. I think bonus moms-god moms, grandmas, step moms and foster moms don’t get enough credit. Those roles are just as important and significant in a little ones life as their own mother is if they actually are involved.
As a mom I’ve sacrificed my time, mind, money and body. I’ve lost friends, jobs and
It takes a strong women to carry and raise a child.
To the women who hasn’t had a kid yet please consider who your partner is from his genes, to how supportive he will be and never forget that a child is not a play thing but a baby!
You have to pour into them. They don’t just come equipped with the ability to withstand life as it happens. You have to pray for them, give them life when you speak greatness into them, teach them wrong from right and never let them give up on themselves.
You won’t always be liked and that’s ok. You’ll want the best for them so you can’t always be their friend so expect to sometimes get resistance. You have to be their parent first and foremost.
Children don’t always show how much they appreciate who stayed up until midnight helping them with their book report, who picked them up from
Being a mother is an overwhelming love that grows over time.
I can’t even imagine not being Kyree, Kiara and Kalvin’s mommy. Motherhood broke me down to rebuild me stronger and wiser. My greatest blessing is being called their mom.
Even when the job seems done it never really is because real mother’s complain but never stop parenting. You could be married with your own family and your mom will still check up on you or ask you if your hungry. Even when you can hold your own in a mother’s eyes your still their child.
That’s why you have to cherrish your mother while they are still alive. Celebrate them as much as possible because life is to short and you never know how much time you’ll have to love on them.
Today wherever your mom is at make sure her Mother’s Day is special.
