"The days are long, but the years are short." - Gretchen Rubin
Motherhood! How does one sum it up, describe it, explain it or determine its value? It truly is a priceless experience in every way- its the most humbling, challenging and fulfilling thing in my life. Motherhood has made me cry tears of all sorts, it has loosened those heart strings and opened up my heart in a way that I will forever be grateful for. It has made me vastly more patient in some ways and has lessened my patience in others- namely the B.S sometimes life throws your way. I have a list of the drama filled B.S. I no longer have time for or surround myself with. there is this connection you feel with other mothers and women, sometimes their experiences and hardships are the same things you have been through, going threw or will one day go through. I know the unconditional love they have for their children and in some way that makes me feel connected to them. Mothers are extraordinary - I have yet to meet a weak one. I am so honored to be one, and so happy they have a day designed to honor all Mothers out there.
As I type and think about how fast these years have gone by already, I have a lump in my throat and a bit of temporary blurred vision ( told you I have cried many different kinds of tears). Yes, the days can be long and tiring sometimes but we must remember how fast the years pass by, because suddenly we will be wishing for these chaotic loud endless days and nights once again.
Life races on and so do they.
So for this moment in time...
Take it all in
Love these day to day moments.
Happy Mother's Day to you all, XO Ladymvega
