With mother's day soon approaching I thought I'd blog about all you special mommies!
Definition of MOTHER
a : a female parent
b (1) : a woman in authority; specifically : the superior of a religious community of women (2) : an old or elderly woman
: maternal tenderness or affection
: something that is an extreme or ultimate example of its kind especially in terms of scale <the mother of all construction projects>
but a mother is so much more. If I were Webster this would be my definition:
1. A women who holds her pee, ignores her hunger and rarely brushes her hair in order to meet all of her children's needs twice over before her own.
2. A women who has felt a love in a very deep and different way then ever before.
3. A woman who would indeed die for her children but instead lives in a way she hopes will inspire them.
4. A women who makes mistakes yells sometimes and has been more frustrated then she would like to admit but at the end of the day knows that she is the best mother she can be and for that she should take a deep breath, wipe the vomit off of her shirt and sweat off of her face and treat herself to a bottle (er, uh glass) of wine!
No, really being a mother is hard work. It requires a strength you never knew you had, a love you didn't know existed and a selflessness that can only come when you hold your child(en) for the first time. Whether you are the mother of one or 6 children you deserve a pat on the back and a big "At a girl!" because you work hard. You are a blessing and you are richly blessed.
While I was reading one of my favorite blog's "Samuel's Light" I came across this equally awesome blog:Rants from Mommyland. I really loved this particular post and have decided to to participate in their "Mother Pucker Project". This is what the Mother Pucker project is: "The point of the MotherPucker Project is, we want to reach out to moms in need and give them a little encouragement, help and love. It's about letting a mom who really needs it know that someone, somewhere GETS IT. That we see her for who she is and we want to thank her for what she's doing for her kids."
Simple and sweet. I encourage you (if feel like it, of corse:) to venture over to their pretty awesome blog and see the steps on how to make a momma feel special on her day.
