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!
