Happy Mothers Day

Friday, May 06, 2016

I was thinking today of Mothers Day. I have only celebrated this day 4 times for myself, and it is still strange to think that I am a mom. I have by choice, taken the responsiblity of a little human being and have vowed to keep that little human safe, fed, happy, clothed and try to nurture that little human into a polite, kind, gentle, self assured young man. That is quite a job when you think about it. He did not come with a rule book, or a guide book, or even a list of directions. For the last four years I have questioned, doubted and wondered if I am doing this all wrong. Then I get those sweet words, mommy, I love you. Mommy, I need you. And I know that I did it right. But I still question, and I still doubt and I still wonder... what will it be like in another year, or 5 years or 10. How do I keep him safe at 14. He won't hold my hand crossing the street like he does at 4. At 16, I won't be able to buckle him into his car seat like I do now. I have to trust that the job I do now will carry through and he will buckle his own seat belt. I trust that the values that I instill now will be enough to carry him through life and he will say please and thank you always. I hope that he will always share his toys, and that he takes care of his most treasured gifts. I have no way of knowing how it will end, and I hope what I do today gives him the strength to do what is right even if it is hard.

Happy Mothers Day to all of the Mothers that do this job!

A Special Happy Mothers Day to the Mothers that have loved and lost. While I won't even pretend to understand your heartache and how hard this day will be, you deserve to have someone remember them with you. So Happy Mothers Day, and I will remember with you.

Happy Mothers Day to all of the Women that have not become mom's to a small human, but are mom's to everything else. You help us get through.

And most of all to my mom: I don't know how you did it, and for that I love you.

Remember, mom's don't want stuff, they just want your company and your love.
