Mother's Day

I have learned so much from not only my own mother, but all the mothers I have met these past few years. One thing I have learned is that being a mom is not defined by how many diapers we change,(there are moms who haven't changed any), it is not defined by how easy or difficult our labor was,(there are moms that have never been pregnant), it is not defined by the number of hours we have spent with our children, or by the daily runnings, shoe tying, nose wiping, ect, ect, ect....To me, being a mom is simply defined by the love we have for our children. It is that love that moves us to do anything and everything we can for them. From the mom that puts thousands of miles on her car running kids to this or that, to the mom who sits by her child's bedside in the hospital, from the mom who devotes her life to raising awareness in memory of a child lost, to the mom that runs the PTA. The love for a child is the most amazing, beautiful, unmeasurable love there is. Loving our kids is a full time job, 24/7, no matter where they are, what they are doing, or how old they are.
I am so blessed to have been given three beautiful boys to love, each one of them so different, but loved just the same....
I hope you are all having a Happy Mother's Day!
