What I Know Now


So there are some fun moms participating in this mothers day blog bash. It looked like fun and I loved the question to post about...What I know Now.(about being a mom)

I Know now that there are no words in the English language to truly describe Motherhood. It is wonderful but that just dosen't capture it. Sometimes it is scary because I am molding these two beautiful girls that may one day become mothers too and I don't know if I am doing it right. At times my love for them is overwhelming...like did i really gave birth to this precious person? And other times so weird...like when i realize my life is currently consisting of chasing a 10 month old and playing Cinderella 20 times a day!!

I know now what pure love is. It is a constant binding love that will never
end.

I know now what pure pain is. It is giving birth and recovering and having surgeries to recover etc. It is also what I feel when my child is hurt or sad, pain because i would do anything in the world to take that hurt or saddness so that didn't have it.

I Know now that it was worth it. Everything we sacrifice to be a mother everyday is so worth it.

What a great Mother's Day post, and I love the way you say what you're feeling even though we all know that it is so hard to really SAY what we are feeling, you know?:)

Well put, dear sis! You are a SPECTACULAR mom, by the way, just in case you ever forget. I hope you had a sweet Mother's Day. Can you believe that I MISS playing Cinderella with my girls? They like to do things with me now like bake cookies and paint nails, but I miss the innocent make-believe stage...try to enjoy it. Love ya!

Soo true! there is so much about motherhood that you're clueless about until you're in the moment. But what an amazing way to grow and learn!
