A ‘Cheers’ to Momma
As mother’s day approaches, people usually take a moment to appreciate their momma. I’ve always been grateful for mine. But it wasn’t until I became a mom that I truly understood the sacrifices my mom made for us.
Physically-Carrying new life (or lives in the case of twins) and the subsequent dark circles under the eyes after all the sleepless nights takes a toll on the skin!
Mentally- It’s hard work to keep up with doctor appointments or even just to try to wrap my brain around how my 3 -year-old “forgot” where the trash can was and decided instead to stuff her strawberry stems in between the couch seat cushions.
Emotionally- I’ve never known worry like bringing home a baby for the first time or dropping them off on their first day of school.
But because of these sacrifices, moms get an incomparable spiritual reward: there is nothing on this planet like the bond between a mother and her children. I literally would not be the woman I am, the mother, wife, sister and friend I am, had it not been for the love of my incredibly strong and courageous mother. Cheers to my mom and all the mommas for their sacrifices everyday.
