A mother is the heartbeat in the home; and without her, there seems to be no heartthrob.” — ...
Every year, my daughters and my husband ask me what I want for Mother’s Day. I jokingly say, “I want to sleep in, have coffee made, breakfast brought to me, and no fighting.”
Well, let’s just say the girls resort to buying something at the local store because it’s easier to do that than these acts of kindness. Don’t get me wrong, the girls sprinkle all kinds of joy and kindness throughout the neighborhood, it’s just kind of hard for them to do it in the house sometimes.
I wonder if that’s true for many of us. When we are out in the world, reporting to work, going to school, talking to the cashier at the grocery store, we tend to put on a face that might be different from what we present at home.
I have been told that I always look so calm and am so positive. If they only knew, what goes on before I arrive at the school drop off line, getting lunches made, checking for the one tennis shoe that fits Rebecca, finding the random baby picture that Hannah urgently needs for class, losing the keys then finding them in the front pocket of the purse. . . well you get the idea.
Many of us tend to hide what goes on in our homes to the outside world. However, our daily struggles, our laughs, our disappointments, our moments of joy, and our moments of sadness is what makes up a family. And, whether you like it or not, the mom is the person who often holds all the pieces together in the home. It’s a big job. . . well that’s an understatement.
I didn’t know how big of a job motherhood was, until I brought home my 7 lb 2 oz bundle almost 14 years ago.
Motherhood is by far the hardest job I have ever applied for, qualifications that I didn't even think I possessed, and challenges that made climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro appear eaThere have also been sheer moments of joy and times when my heart has been so full of love that I honestly thought it could burst. This mixture of emotion almost daily in my household can be exhausting and amazing all in the matter of 24 hours. We jokingly say that is why our business is booming, Scott continues to build in the workshop to avoid all of this intense emotion with three girls daily!
With all that being said, the moms in our lives often get overlooked. The ones we love the most are oftentimes the ones we forget to shower with kindness and gratitude. I have had the privilege of being blessed with amazing women in my life and I tend to forget all that they have done to help mold the women I am today.
