I saw a quote today talking about how lucky we are to be moms to our boys. And I think that universally that is true for every mom, but when I first became a mom I never thought my son was lucky to have me as a mom.
My mom told me when she came to visit a few weeks after my son was born. I was sitting playing with my brand new baby, giving kisses and trying to woo out a little smile. She told me I was a great mom and how lucky my son was to have me.
I didn’t believe her then, but I am happy to say I do now. If you have ever felt like you are not good enough to be the mom you think your child needs. Remember you are more than enough.
Every smile, kiss and hug is more than enough
Every time you get down on the floor to play or chase your child around is more than enough
Every boo boo you kiss and care for is more than enough
Every snuggle on a “late” Saturday morning or the sick days is more than enough
Every I’m sorry and request for forgiveness is more than enough
Every stinky diaper changed, every load of laundry completed is more than enough
Every floor that is swept, mopped and cleaned (to get dirty all over again) is more than enough
You are so much more than you can ever realize.
You see it in the smiles and hugs. The joy that bounces in their eyes when they greet you after being away all day or maybe just a few hours. Sometimes it may be harder to see, but if you look deep you can see it and know that it is there. They need you and are lucky to have you.
You are a special gift and chosen by God to be the Mom of your child. Through natural birth, adoption or whatever road led you to motherhood you are more than enough.
