Happy Monday!! Being a mom has changed me for the better and I couldn’t imagine life without my kids. Being a mama is the hardest and most amazing job anyone could have. Mother’s Day is a bittersweet one for me, as I’ve mentioned here before. Being reminded constantly that your own mom is no longer physically here is, in a word, hard. But now that I’m a mama to my own sweet babies, there’s so much joy to be found in this holiday for me, as well. It’s a weird mix of feelings, for sure, but I chose to feel JOY above all else. I chose to feel gratitude for all that I have. I chose to accept the love that was pouring out to me (oh, so many sweet messages from friends and family and YOU- so thank you for that!!!). I chose to embrace all of what I was feeling. And it was kind of a really great day, considering.
I’m just so grateful to know so many amazing people. I’m so grateful to have this life that I do. It isn’t perfect, but it’s mine, and I love it oh so much. I guess this weekend just has me feeling all of the feelings. Excuse me as I melt into a puddle on the floor.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there!!!
