I will not forget the pain and the longing. I will not forget the emptiness or the desperation. This weekend, I can snuggle up to my daughter and in that moment I will feel so humbled. So satisfied. So grateful. I have been given this gift of motherhood by the Grace of God, my sister, and my doctors and I will never forget that or take that Grace for granted for a single moment.
As I turn a year older, I'm thankful. I'm grateful. Growing old is a privilege and I'm thankful for it. Being a mommy is also a privilege and it is my gift. It's my birthday gift. My Mother's Day gift. It's my gift. Every. Single. Day.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies out there.Your job is endless, thankless, and wonderful. And to all the ladies longing to become one, Keep your faith. It's worth the wait.
