Mother’s Day has a whole new meaning for me this year. Even though our baby isn’t here yet, I already feel such a strong connection to him/her and I want to be the best mom I can be to my little one.
As I try to figure out this whole ‘mom thing’ myself, it makes me so thankful to have my own mother to lean on. It’s hard being so far away from my family, but it’s clear how strong that bond is, because nothing (not even long distance) can break it. Funny how much you still need your own mom even at 28 years old.
I thought it was so perfect. It must be so surreal to watch your own son/daughter become a parent themselves. This year, I have a whole new level of gratitude for my mom and I hope to be half as great a mom as she is. Love you, mom!!
And a very happy Mother’s Day to Irving’s mom too! So thankful for you and all your love as well.
And a very special Mother’s Day to each of our grandmothers, who will become great-grandmothers for the first time in a few weeks! So proud to have such strong women in our families. Love you very much!
(So much energy and spunk. I love it!)
