Happy Mother’s Day
My sweet baby boy…
I never knew I could love someone as much as I love you.
I won’t lie when I say I was terrified when I found out about those two little lines. Sad even.
I didn’t know how fulfilled my life could be with a little baby. I never knew what it was like. I was the only child. And I never thought I could have kids.
Then, I had you.
An excruciating labor that led to an emergency C-section to rescue us.
My first moments were filled with fear, shaking, and wondering what this new chapter was to bring.
When I finally held you, my life made perfect sense. You were warm, needing me, and so amazing even at a few minutes old.
I was blessed on that day with a best friend full of love, fun, worries, stress, joy, and magic.
I imagined my life ahead of me instead of dreading each day. You gave me something to always look forward to. Another step, another milestone.
I knew that whatever I decided to do, you were at the forefront of my mind always.
Watching you grow from a tiny little baby into a two year old boy has been a flash - so much learning, growing, and travels.
Since today is Mother’s Day, I must thank you. You made me into the mother and person I am today. Without you, I wouldn’t be so strong, loving, and caring. I wouldn’t be half the person I am.
I pray I’m always the mother you hoped for, wanted, and the best at my job.
God granted me the best child in the world and for that, I could not be more thankful.
Being a mom has been the most rewarding, and of course, tiring, task that I’ve ever been given. But I wouldn’t want to do anything else.
You, my son, are the biggest blessing.
