I do believe this is becoming a pet peeve of mine. I know that a lot of people don’t consider a baby a person until they are born, and there is a tendency to not think of pregnant women as mothers...but they are! The moment my child was conceived, I became a mother. The moment I saw the positive test, I knew it. From that moment, I have loved her, prayed for her, worried about her, taken care of her, dreamed and hoped for her, and did everything I could to make sure she was growing and safe. Pregnant women are very much mothers, so if you are expecting, I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday.
On a more sappy note, yesterday wasn’t my first Mother’s Day because every day feels like Mother’s Day. I truly mean that. I have a husband who loves me so selflessly that I feel spoiled, and I am beyond ecstatic to be able to spend my days with my little girl. They always make me feel like I am the most special woman in the world. Also, as much as Mother’s Day is about recognizing your mother - and I have the best one - since becoming a mother myself, for me, the day makes me reflect on my little joy, as well. Every day is like that for me. I know how blessed I am to have her in my life and have the honor and weighty responsibility of raising her. I never want to take her for granted, and try to make it a point every day, to think on that so I be the best example of a woman, wife, and mother as I can for her. She is my Mother's Day gift every day.
