Today was a day where I was celebrated for being a mom, but I spent the day celebrating what my children have done for me. It was a long and at times, difficult road to get to where we are today. I owe my children a lot, they are the ones who rekindled my path with myself and they are the ones who showed me how to love, unconditionally. They are two wonderful little boys who I’m incredibly grateful for.
Sometimes it’s difficult being mommy, and I am really hard on myself about being a mother. I have unrealistic expectations and feel like if any area in my life demands perfection, that is it. I guess I want to be that much better than the generation before me.
All expectations and perfect ions aside, today I just am enjoying being grateful. Today I am simply enjoy my boys and the wonderful world motherhood has brought me to.
