This year I get to do something on Mother’s Day that I’ve waited 4 years to do. I seriously can’t wait. I get to open my very first Maya created Mother’s Day gift! This past week at school Maya and her classmates got to make gifts for their moms. The gifts were sent home yesterday wrapped in tissue paper and tied up with a bow. Maya could hardly contain her excitement about having a gift to give me that she had made all by herself. She kept wanting to tell me what was in the wrapping, but I convinced her to just whisper it to her Daddy so that it would still be a surprise for me.
I remember making little crafts, cards and pictures for my own Mom for Mother’s Day at school. I remember being so excited to give her my little creations. It is truly awesome to now be the recipient of those lovingly made little creations.
I hope all you Moms out there have a very wonderful weekend celebrating being a Mom. Happy Mother’s Day. I’ll be spending my day with these two so I already know it will be wonderful.
It is impossible to come up with the right words to express what being a Mom really means to me. I try, but nothing seems to do it the proper justice. The day Maya came into my life my heart grew in a way I couldn’t even have imagined possible. I looked down at this tiny little being and knew without a shred of doubt that I was already madly in love with her and that she was my heart. Hearing her call me “Mommy” is the best gift I could ask for.
Today, on this day to celebrate Moms, I think about the Moms in my life that have shaped me and guided me and helped me become the type of Mom I can be proud of, the type of Mom that my daughter deserves. I think about my own Mum who means the world to me and who has always shown me what it is to be a good, loving, kind mother. I think about my Mother-in-law who raised 3 wonderful boys, one of whom I am honored to call my husband. I think about my Nana and Gramma, and my Aunt. I think about the mommy friends in my life who inspire me.
Today is your day, every mom out there. Enjoy it!! Today is my day to celebrate and reflect on the joy that I feel in having a little person in my life call me “Mommy”, there truly is nothing better than that.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there. You are amazing.
