Happy Mother's Day

A thousand lifetimes over, I would not have this life any other way. It wasn't planned like this. My type-A personality had my life goals set in stone and displayed for all to see. Because the second you have a semi-serious boyfriend the questions begin. And they never stop and I felt the need to preach my plans to make sure everyone knew what they were and how I would live my life. And then you came. A wildly anticipated moment of fear and doubt and your tiny beating heart opened my eyes to ways I never knew I could love another person. And every single day with you is an adventure from the moment you yell at me to come pluck you out of your crib, to the moment I lay you back down at night (and really the moment I hear you finally quiet after many minutes of reading and singing to yourself). I feel celebrated every single day because I am your mama. The surprise kisses and the constant affection you show me, make me feel like the most important person in your world. I celebrate you, my littlest love, because you made me a mama and you make my heart beat like this.

I love you, I love you, I love you.

Happy Mother's Day to all mamas. You are important and you are needed. Let's celebrate our duty to love the tiny humans and make this world a better place.
