Mothers Day is just around the corner. It will be celebrated on Sunday, May 13th 2012 by mom’s all over the world. What is so special about Mother’s Day? It is the day that is officially marked on my calendar that acknowledges my heroic super powers, unconditional, never ending love that I have for my children. It is the day that I am allowed to say, “Yes, I am a Mom”. On this day, I can celebrate my sleepless nights, and the never ending sacrifices that I make on a daily basis. I would never change a thing, nor would I have it any other way.
I am a caring ear, a healer to scrapes and bruises, a story teller, a taxi driver, and a cheer leader. I come to the rescue in the night when nightmares arrive. I am available at the drop of a hat. This is not a typical nine to five job. It is a labor of love, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. I mean this in the most literal way.
Mother’s Day is very special to me. I started celebrating this day nine years ago when God blessed my husband and I with our first son. It was love at first site. I was a first time mom. Magic, and miracles were found on a daily basis with my first born. He continues to amaze me in so many ways today. He is growing up to be a kind, and considerate little boy.
Two and a half years later, I was blessed again with my middle son. Again, it was love at fist site. Everyday has been filled with love, and awe. Today, he is thriving and amazing me everyday. He was born with delays, but has shown significant progress over the years. He is six years old today. Despite all the challenges I have faced, he has taught me strength that I never knew existed within me. Everyday, we grow together. We learn from each other. The lessons he has taught me about life are lessons that I would never have learned otherwise without him. I feel blessed to have learned so much from him.
I was blessed again with my third son four and a half years later. As always, it was love at first site. He adds sunshine, and lots of love to my life everyday. Despite the sleepless nights that my eighteen month old puts me through, I feel blessed that God added a new miracle to my family.
This Mother’s day, I will count my blessings as I do everyday. I can proudly say, “I am a Mom”.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful mother’s out there."/>
