As we are celebrating Mother’s Day tomorrow, I am so blessed to be a daughter, a mother, and a God-mother.
I can’t emphasize enough how blessed I am to have my mother in my life. She is the true definition of love, caring, giving, and compassion. Over the years, I have watched that woman push herself to raise my brothers and me. Out of nothing, she gave us the best. Until I became a mother, I never understood the sacrifices that my mom had made.
When I became a mother, happiness fell into place once they placed my daughter in my arms for the first time. I began to experience pure emotions that I could not put into words. That agonizing labor pain felt previously disappeared and was replaced by immense joy and satisfaction. Watching that precious face and knowing that she was mine gave me a sense of fulfillment that I have never felt before. I was smiling and crying as I transcended in that world where the only feeling allowed was pure joy, true connection between two souls.
My happiness doubled with the birth of my second daughter. She had filled my life with just as much joy as the first one did. I felt blessed beyond limits to have those two beautiful girls that I call my gifts from my God. They are two amazing human beings with opposite personalities that continue to enhance my life.
My God-daughter has been filling my life with love and joy as well for the past 4 years. I am so grateful that my sister-in-law has chosen me.
Motherhood is not perfect all the time as none of us has learned all the right skills. We are just trying our best with love. Our kids require time, they bring stress and worries. There are days where we don’t know what to do.
In the end, I will not change all the sacrifices, all the sleepless nights, all the anxieties for anything. I may not have seen the world, but my children are my world. To me, motherhood is the true definition of happiness.
I wish all the beautiful mothers, aunts, and god-mothers a Happy and Blessed Mother’s Day.
