Motherhood is Not for Wimps!
Childbirth is usually the most challenging athletic event most women will ever train for – being a mom is definitely not for wimps! And that's just the beginning.
Think about it.....
Who do you know that will get up multiple times in the middle of the night just to check on the kiddos?
Who is willing to sacrifice their good outfit for a shoulder-full of spit up?
Who is able to kiss and mend boo boo after boo boo?
Who is often rushing around in a whirl wind of activity to help everyone else get out the door with all they need and yet not have taken the time to grab more than coffee for themselves?
Who smiles when the kids get off the bus only to the sounds of "What did you fix me for snack?"
Drives the kids all around from practice to game to library and yet has dinner on the table?
Who is willing to listen to tears and sobs from a home sick college girl late into the night?
Who plans, prepares, runs around for a wedding that is not theirs but their daughter's?
Then repeats this whole process again for her grandchildren?
That is my mom!
My mom is not a wimp. I know she is not perfect but she is the perfect mom for me.
I am serious ingrate, and it is so hypocritical.
How many times did I hear growing up and have I told my own kids to say “thank-you”?
I'm going to take a few minutes this week to say thank you my mom for being who she is to help me be who I am. Why not do the same?
Happy Mother's Day Mom- I love you!
