Sometimes, as moms, we just go into survival mode to get it all done. And sometimes, if you're lucky, blessed and loved, your mom comes to visit in the midst of survival. She gives your brain permission to melt and your body permission to be tired while she holds everything together for a while.
This lady, who has already raised her babies, showed up and just got to work! She helped straighten the house- thoroughly suffering from dad-is-taking-a-trip-itus. She did her part and then some to prep kids for their first days at school. She has allowed me the chance to shop alone and also come shopping when I didn't get everything I should have in the first place. Today, she also went through backpacks and systematically handed me papers for signatures then provided a quick brief of necessary info before packing everything back up, and THEN she read with kids before folding laundry tonight😍😭😍😭😍😭. One of my favorite gifts from my mom is the understanding that life is worth celebrating. She is the celebration queen 👑. Life is a precious gift and her example of cherishing every movement is unsurpassed. It's been a lot of fun decorating the house and celebrating today and I'm sure we'll get our fill with the excuse of a birthday this weekend❤️❤️!! A mom like this is more precious than rubies.
I'm learning, as I grow in motherhood, that there is nothing I could ever do to repay you, but I'll spend my whole life overflowing with gratitude for the blessing that is you.
Love you, Mom.
