Today is a day that I get to celebrate that I am your mother. Instead of *wishing* I could relinquish my “mom” duties for a day to celebrate “me”… I feel overwhelmed with love and gratitude for my ability to love and care for you.
~You have provided my life with a new identity.
~You have strengthened my faith and helped me come to know Jesus in a deeply radical way.
~You have given your dad and I a stronger marriage, more love for each other which allows more love for you.
The challenges you bring to our lives are tough, I won’t lie. There are days that I feel ridiculously inadequate in my ability to raise you. There are nights when I sit up and cry because we are both so exhausted from your sporadic sleep schedule. In these times, I know there is meaning.
Thank you, Noah, for teaching me what is truly meaningful in this life. Thank you, for all the things that you will teach me as I tread my way through this “mom thing”.
Forgive me for the times that I fail, because I know I do.
Please, don’t ever stop giving me face hugs. No matter what, no matter how inappropriately they are timed.
I love you, Noah.
Thank you for making me a mom. I am privileged that God choose me to be your mother, that he trusts me THAT much.
Happy mother & son day, my dear, charming son.
Happy Mothers Day to all the wonderful moms in our lives! We have gleaned so much wisdom from your words and actions, thank you.
