I have a wonderful mother who is definitely my best friend and I have always tried my best to make her feel special on mother’s day. However, this mother’s day has a whole new meaning for me this year. I have always been so grateful for such a wonderful mother and love to celebrate her, because man does she deserve it! But, I never knew just how incredibly special this day could feel for me personally. I am so incredibly honored to get to celebrate as a mother this year. Being a mother is not something you can you put into words. It is the greatest honor of my life. It is my most proud title. It is a million little moments that create a joy that is immeasurable.
I understand that mother’s day can be an incredibly difficult time for some people. The sadness and pain that this day can hold is not lost on me. If you want to be a mother and aren’t yet, if you have lost your mother or never really had one to begin with, I hear you. I feel you. I have been there with you. For you, I hope you can get through this day surrounded by people who love you and support you. I hope they hold you up and carry you through this day.
For the rest of you mothers, I hope you enjoy every second of this day and what it represents. Being a mother is incredibly difficult at times but is the most important job of your life. You are raising the next generation. You were given your child or children specifically. Jerimiah 1:5 says, “Before you were formed in the womb I knew you, before you were born, I set you apart”. That is one of my favorite verses in the Bible and personifies to me that Ella was mine long before I knew Ella was mine. She was created to be my child and I was created to be her mom. So, on the long days that are exhausting just remember that you were chosen for this. Women, mothers, are a force to be reckoned with. So keep on keeping on and know that what you are doing is amazing. I hope your day is filled with love and gratitude…..and hopefully a nap.
I love these matching dresses so much! They are called the “Rosie” dress, which is such a special name to me. I knew that it was meant to be that Ella and I had to wear these dresses on mother’s day! You can shop them here: http://liketk.it/2OwjB.
