    Mothers Day and Keeping it Honest

    Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms, grandmothers, and sisters out there! There are also so many wonderful women out there that are a mother figure in a child’s life, and I am grateful to all those women as well. They say, a mother’s love is unconditional and from my personal experience, I couldn’t agree more.

    You see, I never truly understood the sacrifice and unconditional love that my mother made for me and my siblings until I had kids of my own. Mothers have this inner strength and their job never ends, not even on sick days.  They always find the extra energy to be there no matter the circumstance. Today, I wanted to take a moment to let you know that you are appreciated and absolutely amazing!

    Every day and every waking moment is such a learning experience for my husband and I.  The days may seem long but the years are so short!! Sometimes I realize this in spurs and then remember the miracle of another life that I am responsible for, and how much I have to cherish the experience. I have been so blessed to have the ongoing support of family; my mother, sisters, and of course, my darling husband! As a working mom, I want to give a HUGE shoutout to all the other working moms for the sacrifice but also to the stay-at-home moms for their dedication.  It’s always such a juggling act being a mother. I’ve seen it from my mom’s perspective as a stay-at-home mom and then from my experience as a working mom.  Each side of the spectrum has its own set of challenges. You are phenomenal, awe-inspiring, remarkable, and wonderful! Being a mom is the BIGGEST BLESSING in the world and there’s just no other way to describe it.

    My advice as a mother is to be accepting of the imperfections of life and parenting.  Give yourself grace and just go with the flow. I am usually one that likes to plan but I have learned that it’s also okay to ask for help. Motherhood isn’t perfect and it’s best to realize that we are all different and unique in our ways, so do not compare your journey as a mother with others.
