Happy Mother's Day!

I just wanted to say Happy Mother's Day to all the moms & moms-to-be out there!

This is my first Mother's Day as a mother, so that's pretty cool, although we haven't really done anything special other than just taken some "family" time for me, baby Robbie, and my husband (which is rare, and what I usually want more of anyway).  I'm sure there will be plenty of homemade cards, homemade crafts, etc (and hopefully some non-tacky jewelry, lol) in years to come, but hopefully we'll still make time to just be and do something as a family as well.

As cheesy as it sounds, I do feel like I'm closer with my mom snow than before I had a child of my own, and I feel like part of this is because we did have a while to spend time together around the time Robbie was born. I have always had trouble sharing with and getting close to people because I worry what they think, and I guess that goes double for family, but I feel like the older I get the more of my mother I do see in my myself, and that makes it easier for me to open up to her because I feel like she may understand where I'm coming from.

Still, it's wierd. I was gonna do one of those "tribute to my mom" type posts, but couldn't really find the words, and I can't do one of those "what motherhood means to me" posts either, because it's also hard to find the words for that, and I haven't been a mom long enough to have much to say. I just wanted to say thank you to all of the moms that have gone before, in my family and in the world, for making me what i am, and for shaping our society itself. I really do feel like motherhood is a force that connects me with all of the other mothers worldwide, and I hope the way i raise my son lifts us up instead of holding us back.

  1. Sometimes words cannot describe a feeling or a moment; maybe its just sitting, feeling, thinking and experiencing and fully being in that moment. Thank you for sharing, Peace and Love, Sarah.
