What is the best part about being a mother? Not having any children of my own, I asked my mom and my aunt, who I am spending the day with, and here is what they shared with me:
• When your kids call you mom, mother, mommy, mum, whatever they choose as they all use different words. Whatever it is, you love hearing it. My mom says, “That gave me the most pleasure to hear!”
• Especially when your children come from school and they have a great report card or the teacher paid them a compliment. They bring home their first work of art. You save them for years and years. This joy continues throughout their school years.
• When they get married and the grandchildren come, that is another class of love. It is a miracle to see them born.
• To watch them grow and create their careers. To see the smile on their face as they tell you about their accomplishments as it has a lot to do with what you taught them. To hug them when they need support and advice.
I could write for hours about the experiences they shared with me that made me laugh, brought tears to my eyes and conjured up sweet memorie which were all about the importance of being a mom and what it means to your children. As a daughter, my mom is my very best friend and soul mate.
Wishing you a special day!
