motherhood, mother's day

motherhood is the best job I have ever had in this lifetime

and I simply love being a mum for all the many wonderful reasons,

the privilege of witnessing the blossoming of another beautiful creation first-hand, 

the infectious giggles and beautiful smiles,

the “good morning” kisses and night caps of hugs,

the generous  supply of “i love yous”

and numerous spit-ups and the throw-ups

the occasional public tantrum 

the spontaneous silly expressions,

the unintelligible mumbles I have learned to decipher over time

the beautiful thought of knowing someone just wouldn’t last a day without me

and the equal happiness it brings to know that I cannot last another second without this same person,

only time will tell if my little man will be a diver or a surfer or a race car driver, 

and I am dying to find out

and I will be there every step of the way

helping him to realize his goals

nurturing him to become the person he was destined to be

I guess that’s what mums are really all about,

and I am loving every minute of it.

motherhood, Mother's Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful mums out there!
