Happy Mother’s Day!

This year, Mother’s Day has taken on a whole new meaning for me.  When I became a mom on Halloween, I never thought I could love someone as much as deeply as I loved my child.  I would lay my life down for this kid, who honestly, isn’t capable of doing much more than sleeping, pooping and crying right now, yet, I would go to the ends of the earth for her.  And that’s when I was humbled by the realization that that’s how exactly how my mom feels about me.  I’m so blessed to have a mom who truly lives and breathes for my happiness.

To my mom:  Thank you for showing me what it means to be the ultimate mother.  I have never felt more gratitude towards you than I have this past year.  Since becoming a mom myself,  I have a new deeper appreciation and understanding of the love and sacrifices you made for me and my siblings.  My hope is that I can be as good of a mother to Zoey as you are to me. I love you!

To my daughter: Thank you for making my dreams come true and making me a mom this year.   You are the daughter that I’ve  been praying for and I still can’t believe I get the privilege of being your mom.  You make my heart soar with joy and pride. I love you!

And a special salute to all the new mommies celebrating their first Mother’s Day!

Happy first Mother’s Day! I love your honest and heartfelt entries. The photo of Zoey is so adorable! The giraffe looks bewildered, though, haha.
