The Gift of Motherhood
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.
