When I became a mom 14 years ago, I knew without a doubt that I would love it. I knew that the love I felt for my daughters would be deep. I knew that it would be hard. I knew on some level my heart would break sometimes.

What I did not know, was how intensely I would love my daughters- like to my core LOVE them. I did not know HOW hard it would sometimes be. I didn’t know how DEEPLY my heart would be touched over a kiss or a flower or a look. I did not know that I would love my husband more intensely by watching him become a father. I did not know that it would change the way I viewed absolutely every thing in my world from dirty windows, my definition of a clean house, or stuffed animals to being in a boat going up a river, spiders, snakes & wildlife, or boys. (I do have 3 girls!)

There is so much I still don’t know, but I do know this… being a mother has made me a better person tenfold. I am less judgmental, more patient, more introspective, less guarded, & more blessed. And so much more.

Today I am thinking of all Moms and this truth: YOU ARE ENOUGH. You are worthy. This is hard and messy but there is nothing in this world like being a mother. For those mamas who have lost a child, my heart hurts for you. For those who watch someone you love fight illness, I pray for you. Today I am wishing you a moment of grace and love. Please know that we see you and feel you and that you are not alone, even in your deepest struggles. Happy {belated} Mother’s Day Mamas!
