Mother's Day is fast approaching – what does yours typically look like? For many mamas, this day is often celebrated with a delicious family brunch, bouquets of spring flowers, and gifts for mom. Some families attend church and worship together, while others have picnics in the (hopefully perfect!) spring weather.
Having a day to honor moms allows us to pause for just a moment and reflect on what it truly means to be a mother. Motherhood is simultaneously the most difficult and incredible journey we will ever embark on as human beings. It is more than a job – it is truly a calling. What exactly does it mean to be a mother?
Being a mother means quite literally watching your whole heart walk outside of your body as your child embarks on his or her own journey into the world every day.
It means worrying constantly, even after they turn 18; where are they? Are they safe? Are they happy? Do they feel fulfilled?
Being a mother means lying awake for hours staring at the monitor when they're tiny and sick, just in case they suddenly need you. It means worrying about everything, from sniffles to big life choices and how the ones you make will define and shape these little people.
It means laughing at jokes that aren't funny, hearing "Mommy, watch me!" so many times that you feel like your head might explode, and sometimes hiding in the closet in tears because today was just one of those days.
Motherhood means constantly wondering if you've done enough – or if you are enough. Spoiler alert: you absolutely are.
