Love. Hard work. Sacrifice. SelfLESSness.
I never realized just how much life changes with children until we had this little gem. The thing is...it changes in all the best ways. It doesn't feel like hard work or sacrifice or selflessness. Most the time.
As I reflected on my first Mother's Day, I thought about the mother that I had. The mother I still have. See, being a mom is one of those luxuries that never stops. It's not like other jobs that last a certain amount of time. It's a forever job. And because of that, a forever blessing.
I am so blessed to have the mom I have. She loves me unconditionally, supports me in all my endeavors, and listens before lending advice. She never judges or gives unsolicited commentary. Watching her be a grandma is one of the best things ever.
I realize I am the mom I am because of the mom she is to me.
For that, I am grateful.
