Being a mom is finding balance amongst chaos. It's knowing when you have to let go and knowing when you need to tighten your grip a bit. It's drawing the line between what's best for your kids, against what you know, and against what you want for them. It's accepting your mistakes knowing that their love for you is completely unconditional. It's feeling their hopes, their wounds, their pain, and their happiness with such intensity its as if it's your own. It's patience mixed with loosing control. When they give me unwarranted hugs and say "I love you Mom" nothing else matters. Those moments are my trophies in life. They are my hope and my determination. Being their mom is the greatest honor of my life.
I hope all of your mothers out there had a wonderful mothers day xo
