i.am.her® i am a mother

This has to be one of the best jobs I have ever had. Being a mother is a blessing. It is about providing unconditional love, safety and security to your children.  

My son and my daughter are everything to me.  They come first before anything.  Everyday is something new with them and I love every moment of it and wouldn't trade it for anything.

I remember the day when I found out I was expecting a girl. I was so excited! "will she look like me?...what will she be when she becomes an adult?....who will she marry?...." I had all of these questions in my mind.  I am raising her to be strong, smart and learn to grow her spiritual life.  I love this girl so much and will do until beyond the rest of my days.

I find that raising a boy is so much different than a girl.  My son is such an active toddler. I love it! Keeps me on my toes.  I am teaching him to love yet to be strong.  I pray everyday that he stays out of trouble when is an adult.  Our society and culture is not giving me any choices but to continuously remind him who he is and where he came from.

We play together, laugh all the time, cherish every priceless moments we create.  I practice tough love and they both know that mommy don't play!

I am her. I am a mother.

I stand strong for my babies. I am their teacher and disciplinarian. But of all, I am and will always be their mommy.  Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful ladies out there. You are doing a hell of a good job.  Celebrate YOU everyday!
