Mom is Earned, Not Owned | GIF #5
This is my story.
Since having my daughter in 2015, Mother’s Day has slowly evolved to be something that I no longer dread... it’s not all rainbows and butterflies, but I actually kinda look forward to it now. The redemption God has had in my life through my bond with my daughter is a GIFT I will never take for granted. Now, there is still a portion of every Mother’s Day that I grieve for what I wish could have been... and allow myself to PROCESS the sadness. Then, I remember the redemption, looking into the face of MY little girl, knowing that I will never stop fighting to EARN the title of “Mom.”
Friend, if Mother’s Day is also painful for you for this reason, I feel you. You are STRONG, WORTHY, and IMPORTANT... even if your mom never told you that growing up.
