Being a mother is something magical. It doesn’t come with a handbook or with rules and regulations. It’s based on pure motherly instinct. You don’t start, knowing what to do or how to do it. You just do it. There will be some days that are better than others. There will be days that you just don’t know if you’re doing it right.
You’re not alone
You are not alone. Some days I feel like I am on top of the world and have this mother thing down. Then there are other days that I feel like I am a complete failure. There are days I am just ready to give up but know I can not. I have this precious little boy who drives me crazy but I love him to death. Being able to see his smile, hear his laugh, and watch him learn something new. That is the best thing in the world. Being there to wipe his tears, to cuddle him when he needs his mommy, and being there to make him feel better when he is not feeling good. That is something a mom is born to do.
You’re there to teach them right from wrong. To teach them how to be strong independent people when they grow up. You’re there to teach them how to succeed in life. A mother is there to pick them back up when they fall and encourage them to try again. Being a mother is definitely not easy and no one ever said it was, after all, it is called motherhood. Just be there for them, love them, cherish them, and support them. You may not have a handbook to teach you how to raise them. What you do have though is your heart to always love them. That is what they need the most, their mothers love. With that, they can do anything and you can conquer motherhood.
