Happy Mother’s Day to every woman out there.. To the mothers.. To the daughters that are mothers and to the daughters that will one day become a mother. There is no greater gift in this life than becoming a mother. It is a path filled with many things.. Many emotions .. Many hardships.. Many smiles.. Many tears.. Many laughs and many lessons.
To my daughter .. Who will one day, be a mother to her own.
I love you.. I’ve loved you from the first day that I saw that little heart beating.. from that first kick.. To the day that you were born. I’ve never stopped loving you and I never will.
There were good days and bad days.. Sleepless nights, broken hearts, slamming doors and times that lacked understanding. There were also a lot of I love you’s. Hugs and kisses, talks and listening without saying a word. Please know that when you become a mother, the good will always outweigh the bad. And that one day being a mom will mean more to you than anything else in this world.
There will be times that you’ll wonder if you’ve done the right thing, or said the right words. Please know, that if what you did came from the heart.. It will always be the right thing. And remember to always choose your words wisely, because you can never take them back once they’re said.
There will be days that you’ll fear that your child will make the same mistakes that you did. Please know, that mistakes are a blessing. They’re teaching tools to becoming an amazing person. Always trust that mistakes will be made and those mistakes are what make us who we are. And PLEASE .. Please.. Please.. Never forget.. That if you don’t trust your child to make the right choices or even bad ones.. They will NEVER learn to trust themself. Trust will always begin with you.
There will come a day when you’ll have to say goodbye to that small helpless child that you’ve watched grow for 18 years. You’ll hope and pray that you’ve given them the tools that they need to make it on their own. Please know, that that goodbye is not a goodbye .. Because being a mom doesn’t stop there. You’ll always be a mom. And that gift will stay with you always .. and forever.
Especially on Mother’s Day
