Mom. This woman amazes me, every day.
I am not a mom, yet. I know there are things I will not understand until I am. But I do know how lucky I am to have her. To be like her. And to have developed into the woman I am on the foundation of her unwavering love, acceptance & admiration. As our national Mother’s Day arrives, I want to acknowledge the woman who gave birth to me, lived to love and care for me & who still teaches me so much every day. I am humbled & in awe. And so very grateful.
A lot of important women in my life are having babies. Family. Friends. Women I have known a long time & respect greatly. It is so fascinating & inspiring watching the transformation to motherhood. It is profound. Magical. And deeply instinctual. Every single experience is different. Each on their own beautiful journey. I have so much love for each of you.
As I walk along my path in life, sometimes I wonder, what it will be like to be a mom & still be me? A balancing act to love in a new way – a way we are born to love – but to still prioritize & honor our self-love. Rooting deep into who I am, yet still open to transformation beyond anything I can be imagine. To stretch. And grow. To give unlike before. To love in a way I have not. They say: it is the best & hardest thing you will do.
I look forward to becoming a mother one day. I am grateful for all the strong, loving mothers in my life. You all fill the world with joy & love. Thank you.
Happy Mother’s Day.
