This Mother’s Day holds a whole new meaning for me. It’s been 35 years in the making. I crossed the bridge from daughter to mother. I am so grateful for a little girl of my own, for the tremendous blessing to be her mother. I am grateful for my partner, my loving husband, who shares this parenthood journey with me. I am still in awe of what we created.
As I said in my last post, you can never fully appreciate the ultimate sacrifice of one’s self or understand the profound love and devotion mama’s hold for their babes until you become a mother yourself. I knew I would love her, I knew I’d love being a mother, but I never really understood the magnitude. And honestly, I probably still don’t. This amazing soul is only going to enhance my world more with each passing day and through our milestones and joys and challenges I’ll understand more. I’ll love more. I’ll give more. She consumes me.
I’ve joined a sisterhood of mothers. I have new-found appreciation for you all and am delighted to be a member of the club. To all the mother’s out there, I wish you a very happy Mother’s Day.
To my mama, this Mother’s Day and always, I want you to know I love you to the depths of my soul and am so honored to be your daughter. I’ve always admired you, but even more so now as I see you with my own daughter, your namesake, our sweet Connie Elizabeth. She is blessed to have you as her grandmother and she will cherish you.
Cody and I are blessed with so many amazing women in our lives. Our moms, our grandmothers, our sisters, and family and friends who also share the title of Mom. Happy, happy Mother’s Day to you all.
