It is just barely sinking in that today is my first taste of what a Mother's Day feels like. Even though I don't have the official title of 'Mom' until the baby comes in November, I still feel like I am a mother already. I am taking care of this little peanut and doing my best to keep it healthy and happy until this little boy or girl arrives in November! I look forward to the thousands of memories that will be created as a mom and know that this role of mother will be the most important role of my life. I look forward to decades of motherhood and can't wait for our little one to call me Mom someday...
As I think about motherhood, I can't even begin to grasp how I will be the kind of mother that my mom has been for me for the past 26+ years. My mom is the most incredible woman I know and can accomplish more in a day than any normal human being. She is kind, caring, generous beyond belief, my best friend, my confidant, and the person that knows me better than I could ever know myself. I look up to this woman and hope that I can just be half of the mother she has been to me and count myself so incredibly lucky to have her in my life and in the lives of my future children. I love you Mom!
And to my mother in law Carlene, you welcomed me into your family over 7 years ago and have made me feel like a daughter from the beginning. You have raised a great man for me to share my life with and continue to be an influence in our lives. Thank you for your support, understanding, and the kindness you have shown me throughout the years. I look forward to seeing you step into the role of Grandma soon. I love you and love being a part of your family.
Happy Mother's Day to all of the beautiful moms out there!
