Today is such a special day.
Yes, it is the first Mothers Day that I am celebrating as a new Momma, but it is also the day that I continue to celebrate the wonderful woman who raised me from day one. Having gone through the process of “growing a human”, I can only appreciate my mom even more. Knowing the love that I instantly felt the first moment I saw Olive, I can now appreciate the nights my mom waited up for me to come home, the tears she shed as she dropped me off at school over 1500km away, and the joy she felt as she watched me walk down the aisle with my Dad. I can now understand her “pee dance” whenever water is running, and the want to shower her children with gifts whenever possible.
A day without you in my life would be a day without sunshine. You’ve been my strength when I’ve been weak. You’ve held me up when I’ve had trouble standing tall. You’ve stood tall and proud beside me every step of the way through my life. I cherish you. You are not just my Mom, you are my best friend.
It gives me no greater joy than seeing you hold my daughter every day! I know she is just as in love with you as I am!
