On this Mother’s Day, I thought I’d write about what my mom has meant to me, and the impact she has on me as a mom and person. My mom is pictured here with my sisters, me and her granddaughters. I know she has and will continue to have a major influence on all of us. Her unconditional love’s meant so much to me over the years–always, but especially when my own journey has offered challenges, heartbreak, and new beginnings. Here are the biggest lessons I’ve learned from her:
In honor of their unconditional love, we are honoring all mothers this weekend. A mother’s love comes in many different forms, all of which nurture and help us grow. I’m grateful for the influence my mom has on me; it’s shaped and helped me grow into who I am today.
In fact, this weekend, we honor all people who we have connected to their nourishing and nurturing energy, and allowed us to grow into who we’ve become. Take this time to celebrate the women in your life for their unconditional love, and the sacrifices they’ve made for us. Show them true gratitude for the lessons we’ve taken from them as we move along on our own journeys as mothers or women. Honor the mother in your life, or maybe the one that exists within you, on this Mother’s Day.
