This is my very first mother's day (apart from last year when Summah was in the womb) where I get to hold my child in my arms, and I am richly blessed to have this gorgeous girl in my life.
It is a unique experience to become a mother, to be a mother and to be a child loved by a mother, there are not enough words to express how great it can be, and how it should be.
For some though there isn't a great mother child bond, there are some that don't have a mother anymore, some who have never meet, been held, kissed or loved by their mother. Just last night I watched the movie 'Precious' (if you've seen it you'll know what I'm talking about) it is really sad how Precious is treated by her mother, but awesome to see how Precious changes and decides to be a loving mother to her 2 children, despite the circumstances (be warned it's a very real and raw movie if you watch it.) Watching this movie made me more aware of how important it is to be an example to your children, not to sweat the small stuff and to embrace them with open arms often.
I'm blessed to be a daughter to an amazing mother and I endeavor to be the best mother I can be to Summah and any children to come. Today, my first mother's day I've started a trend to take a mother child photo every year, as each year I'm being moulded, challenged, and inpsired as a mother. The photo's will be a reminder of this journey I've begun as a mother and the fun times I've shared with my child/ren.
Happy Mother's day.
