The day I became a mother was a day like no other. It was the most painful (felt every moment of labor from beginning to end), exhilarating, exhausting (first time I have ever pulled an all nighter), emotional, spiritual (I witnessed a miracle), BEST day of my life. Days after we brought W home from the hospital, the Carter's commercial started playing. I was already a ball of emotion and then Carter's had to go and create the most meaningful commercial I have ever seen. I mean how does a brand-spankin-new momma not lose it when she hears the commercial child say "the day I became yours, you became mine." Que the rolling tears. When I became a mother that September morning, all I could think about was how on earth was I SO lucky to be blessed with such a gift. After seeing this commercial it struck a cord with me and made me think that not only was I given this gift, he was given a gift too. Me. One day soon he will be making me cute handmade gifts to bring me in bed on Mother's day. He will really be celebrating me... as his mother. Do you guys realize how special that is?! This mother-child bond is so ridiculously amazing.
As mom's I think we often are so unbelievably overwhelmed with our love for these tiny creatures we were lucky enough to create, that we forget how lucky they are too. They have US as mommies.
Happy Mother's Day to my sweet mother. Becoming a mother myself has given me such a vast understanding of your love for me and I cannot wait to experience this kind of love with my son throughout his life. Thank you for being my angel. I love you mom.
Happy Mother's Day to my inspiring mother-in-law. Thank you for raising such a wonderful son that I am so blessed to call my husband. Thank you for praying for all of us since before we were even born. We love you.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. The new mommies, the mommies to be (gosh y'all are in for a real treat), future mommies, and mommies who have been celebrating this day for years...You are all angels.
