This year Mother’s Day has a little different meaning. I’m going to be a mother. Wow! When I say that out loud it seems so surreal. I would like to think that all mothers question their ability. I NEED to think that because I question myself all the time. Will I guide them in the right direction? Will I be the right amount of balance between mother and friend? Will I know what to do when they’re sick? I will now be responsible for their little lives. When I think about all the things that can go wrong I wonder how all you mothers get any sleep. All I know is I will love them and they will know it. I promise to do my very best and I will throw myself in front of a moving vehicle to keep them from getting hit. Hopefully it won’t come to that, but you get it.
To all the mothers out there: You make it look easy and today I honor you. Especially my mother. I’ve always known you sacrificed and did what you had to do, but now I UNDERSTAND. Thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do. Without you I wouldn’t be alive. Seriously. I love you.
Happy Mother’s Day!
