First she had me…
It seemed only right that I sit down and type up a special post on this very special day, Mama’s Day.
Most importantly, Happy Mother’s Day to my Mama. She is the best, most special, forgiving, unconditional, loving… I could go on and on and on… Mama. I am so lucky and so blessed that God chose her to be mine. She always knows how to take care of me when I’m down, says just the right things in any moment, and most importantly taught me how to love. Which leads me to what she used to always to say to me as I was growing up: “You’ll understand when you become a mom…” As a kid, I always used to roll my eyes, thinking I knew everything. Who’s with me?!
Welp. She was right. When I became a mama myself, every single solitary thing changed. I grew a place in my heart I never knew existed while feeling this love that is simply indescribable. It was something I had never felt before, but unknowingly, had seen as this is the exact feeling my mom had always felt & expressed for my brother and I. When I held that sweet boy in my arms for the very first time, crying of course, I discovered what she had been saying all along. Looking at him in any moment I am usually thinking how much I love him and no matter what he does that will NEVER change. Just like I am so incredibly blessed that God chose my mama for me I am also blessed that he entrusted me as Hudson’s mama. Because of the way my mom raised and loved me, I know I have her to thank for the Mama I have become. I love you!
Ok, enough of that sappy stuff. All you mamas and soon-to-be mamas, I hope you have the very best day. Being a mom and cooking a baby is hard work and the best, most rewarding job, you deserve it!
