Mother’s Day will be celebrated thisÂ Sunday, May 13th 2012 – the one day a year we mom’s can sit back, put up our feet and celebrate Motherhood.
I wrote the following post on my blog last Mother’s Day and thought I would share it here with all of you:
“A Mother is a woman who had conceived, given birth to, or raised a child in the role of a parent“. This is part ofÂ the definition according wikipedia however, to me the role of Motherhood is define by so much more than that.
Whether birthed, adopted or taken in, the love is there and a real mother will show it every single day in every single way. Mothers are not perfect but we work hard. Physically, mentally and emotionally. We nourish our marriages, raise our kids, keep our households, hold down jobs, run businesses and make life happen all for love and all with the strength of a woman.
It takes a real woman to truly deserve the title “Mother”. Through the little things she does to the more grand, always doing her best from what she knows. Sacrifices made for the happiness of our children, sleepless nights, early mornings and we wouldn’t ask for anything different.
Every mother is unique from the way she dresses to the way she raises her children, every mother is special and every mother is a wonder woman in my eyes.
These are just some of the words to describe some of the most wonderful moms I know both offline and online. Look in the mirror ladies, tell yourself “I am a beautiful woman and an incredible mother” – because you are.
Mother’s Day isn’t just a day to celebrate Motherhood but also a day we should take to celebrate being strong, beautifulÂ women.
Take this day and do something for yourself. If spending it with your family is what you want, do it. If spending it shopping alone is what you want, then do it. If going out for a fancy dinner while the kids are babysat, then do it. If you want to spend the day at the spa being pampered, then do it. You deserve every minute of it Moms.
