Ode to Motherhood

Life is a gift. So is motherhood. Being a mother is a hard, often thankless, job. No doubt about that. But motherhood is beautiful and wonderful. I can’t even imagine what my life was like before my son. Sure I remember the ‘freedom’ of doing what I want, going where I want and not having the worries and duties I have now. But every second was (and is) worth it. Andrew has blessed my life in so many ways.

And I am so grateful to my own mom. She is an amazing, wonderful woman who sacrificed a lot for us – more than I think we will ever know.

This Sunday is Mother’s day, so I’d like to take this opportunity to honor my mom and all mothers with some quotes and images I’ve found on Pinterest. Enjoy!

  3. “to forgive yourself over and over again for doing everything wrong”
    Made me remember something Dr. Ray said last night on EWTN.

    As parents we expect our children to learn according to our time table, yet all our life long we bring to confession the same old laundry list, which should help us realize what slow learners we ourselves are.
