Being Their Mother

skin tones
Their different skin tones never cease to astonish me!

For some reason this upcoming Mother's Day I have reflected more on my children than on who has mothered me. I have been thinking of their sweet spirits. How they have grown. The tears I have shed and the laughter that they bring into our home. I am so proud that they are mine. I love that they enable me to reflect on who I have become because of them. I am so lucky.
So here's a celebration to them. A celebration of the joy and the embraced sorrow that they have brought into my life. As a reminder to me (and to all who are willing to spend a few moments reading;)... here are some past blog posts of my feelings and reflections.
Oh! How I love being their Mother.

To My Son , Go to sleep!, Sweet Sweet Kai, Face It, The funny things he says, What is wrong with your son?

Just Chill'n, Fairy Tales gone wrong, Today I let go, Say What? , Modesty, What I remember, Ultra Cool

Pink + Blue
The Fair
The sweetest smells
Summer Blues

The Ordinary
Every day I love you

Thank you My Children, for making me a MOTHER.

Beautiful post. Yes, mother's day is just as much (if not more) about the blessings, isn't it? Each of our children.

Just popping over via Design Mom to say that I loved your birth story + could really relate to your description of the nights alone without your baby (my son was in the NICU for ten days after his birth). Thanks for sharing!

That's what I have been doing this year too. Happy Mother's Day!
