The Gift of Motherhood

Being a Mother is not about what you gave up to have a child, but what you gained from having one.

The Gift of Motherhood is simply the most amazing gift that I have even been given.  The day that Peyton was placed into my arms forever was the single Most Amazing Day of my Life.  I will never forget the peace that flooded over me the moment he was placed into my arms.  Everything changed in that moment.  I knew that from that moment forward our lives would never be the same again.

I was right.  It only got better.  He completed our family.  I have enjoyed every single moment of Motherhood.  I quickly knew that I would give up my teaching career the moment he was placed into my arms.  I couldn’t breathe with the thought of going back to work. Was it an easy decision?  No!  Was it financially difficult Yes!  However, everything that I gave up I have gained tenfold.  I have zero regret in leaving my career behind.  I am so thankful for each moment.

When I say I am thankful for every moment, I truly mean that.  There isn’t an age that I haven’t loved.  I thought that each age was better than the one before, of course the baby and toddler stages were my favorite but the deep conversations that I am able to have with Peyton now are so amazing. I have loved the good, bad and ugly.  Every second that I have as a mom are the most precious moments that I have been given.  When I look at my son, I know that I have been given the best gift from God.  I am so thankful to love him and cherish the moments that we have together.

The gift of Motherhood is truly the most amazing and life changing gift.  I am better person because of it.    When I found this motherhood quote “Being a Mother is not about what you gave up to have a child, but what you have gained from having one”.  It really spoke to me.  This is how I feel about the gift that I have been given.   We went through so much to bring Peyton home through our International Adoption Process.

I hope that you have a Happy Mother’s Day and if you are a Mother take time with your children today and everyday because they are the greatest gift in the world.
