There is so much to celebrate in motherhood, being able to carry life for 10 months & deliver it. Has taught me that there isn’t anything a woman can’t do.
The exhaustion of motherhood is real mentally, physically, and emotionally. This journey requires complete dedication, and selflessness to your baby. But as my son grows and reaches these milestones, I am content in knowing that my sacrifices are paying off. Regardless of the hard work that comes with mothering.
I find myself waking up in the middle of the night. Not to the sound of my infant crying, but just to stare at him as he sleeps. Not to breastfeed, but to watch him breathe. Not to change his diaper, but to say a prayer over him because he is everything to me and MORE!!!
I love this phase of my life. I feel so content, and fulfilled. I might have tried and failed at some things. But, I will NEVER stop giving 100% at being the best mom I can be. No matter how difficult.
Motherhood is wonderful, even in the chaos. It’s a life changer. And I’m grateful for this privilege. This is the closest I’ve gotten to unconditional love and by far one of the greatest blessings God has given me.
To all Mothers,
Mothers who are first time moms,
Mothers who are mourning the loss of a child,
Mothers who are waiting to meet their first baby,
Mothers who are currently pregnant,
Mothers who are surrogates,
Mothers who are apart from their kids due to one reason or the other,
Mothers who have lost that bond with their children,
Mothers who are spiritually strong for her fellow woman,
First born daughters who play the role of mothers,
Whatever the role as a Mother means to you.
You are celebrated today because you are power, strength & kindness. You may feel broken, but you make broken look beautiful. You take the universe on your shoulder and make it look like a breath of fresh air. I want you to know that you are absolutely beautiful in your postpartum body.

From one mother to another, motherhood look so good on you. Be kind and gentle with yourself because you are the bomb in this role. I know it is tough, but take the time out today to relax. You deserve it.
