celebrating moms on Mother's Day | Oh Lovely Day

Being a mother is the hardest, craziest, most fun, most joyous, loudest, silliest, sweetest, happiest, proudest, longest, and shortest experience of my life. The days are long and the years are short, and the more I get under my belt the more they seem to speed up. If I could have anything for Mother’s Day, it would be a pause button. I know so many of us struggle — whether it is to become a momma, to carry a baby, to give a child a home we didn’t give birth to but is ours just the same, to feel like a good mom, to balance how to be a mom when we’ve lost a baby or a child, to get through a hard day with our kids, to fee worthy of such amazing little people. I’m so grateful each day to my children for letting me be their mothers, even when I am having a hard time. I feel so grateful each day to my mother for making me the person I am, even though I don’t show it enough. I feel grateful to my husband each day for helping me to be the best mother I can. I’m thankful to my mother-in-law for raising such a wonderful son who is an amazing father to my children. Mothers create and give life, but more than that we mold little people. We teach them and hug them and comfort them and love them. We sacrifice ourselves, our bodies, our sanity. But we get so much in return. That’s why all I need is a pause button. And maybe breakfast in bed after an extra hour of sleep…

I wanted to celebrate all moms today — to give you a virtual hug and high-five. Whether you’re a mother in your heart waiting for your baby or child, have a soccer team of your own at home, or have an empty nest but still so much momma love to give: I see you, I applaud you, and you’re amazing. Happy Mother’s Day.
