A Mother Is Born

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.”

During the month of February most people either think of love & Valentine’s gifts or Presidents. Since being a mom involves love, veto power, bipartisanship and chocolate – I guess as moms we get to celebrate all of them!  We work hard to balance all the roles we have to fulfill.
I thought we could spend some time this month being thankful for the children that helped us learn how to be President of our life.  We show our love with each PB&J we make, each diaper we change and each tear we dry.  When we see our role as a gift it seems a little easier to accept the responsibilities that come with the titles we carry. 
We are powerful, but not perfect.  We’re all new at being a mom – no matter how long we’ve held that title.  As we celebrate this month I hope we can remember who gave us the chance to love, lead and live such a full life…         OUR KIDS!
When the days get long and your sleep is short – take a deep breath, love those kids in spite of themselves and lead them!  They gave you your name and you are EXACTLY what they need in a mom. I hope you are surrounded by opportunities to show and receive LOTS of love this month!
