Happy Mother's Day

My 4 year old daughter woke up this morning and said, "Happy Mother's Day" and then she said, "You know mom, before me, you were a robot." She is wise beyond her years.

I'll admit to making some bad decisions in my life, but becoming a mother is not one of them. Motherhood, with all of its ups and down, disappointments and frustrations, has transformed me and made me a much better human being. It has taught me patience, humility and most of all, it has taught me how to love unconditionally.

Becoming a mother has allowed me to understand my own mother better. I don't know where I'd be without my mother's undying love and support, especially now, when I need all the help and support I can get. I'm so grateful and blessed that she is by my side during this pregnancy. I don't think I could have made it without her. Not only is she mom to me and grandma to my daughter, she's also playing the role that would traditionally be filled by the husband or father of the unborn child. She comes running at the slightest sign of discomfort. She never leaves my side when I'm at the hospital. Most importantly, she tends to my every craving.

Today, I celebrate my mother. I know that I didn't always make things easy for her. I celebrate her will to never give up on me.

I have to agree about how becoming a mother changes you. My son has helped me to have the patience of Job and a love like Jesus. You're daughter sounds very creative and wise. Happy Mothers Day to a great mom like you!
