Thoughts on Motherhood

 

Happy Thanksgiving

Most often we say ‘thank-you’ when another person does something for us or gives something to us. But how often have we stopped with our daily routine to just look around and appreciate what we already have?

How often have we whispered “thank-you” while watching our children sleep?
How often have we whispered “thank-you” when we touching our pregnant belly?
How often have we whispered “thank-you” when we see our kids arrive from school?

The list of things we should be thankful for is endless. And if we look at our families with eyes of filled with gratitude for every day we are together, we would be overwhelmed by this greatest gift of life.

Our life and the life we have given birth to, is the greatest gift of existence. Conception, pregnancy, and motherhood should be celebrated with gratitude.  It is a GIFT.   Motherhood is both giving a gift and receiving a gift.

Happy Thanksgiving to all the mothers and soon-to-be mommies out there!

 

 

They say that ‘Motherhood’ changes you.’  It changes your way of seeing things. It changes your priorities in life. It changes the way you appreciate other people around you. Motherhood teaches you a kind of love you never knew existed. Yes, you love your parents and you love your spouse. But you realize the that your heart is capable of feeling so much, that it almost overwhelms you. And you experience that feeling when you become a MOTHER.

I came across this quote and I was struck by the truth of what it is saying. Only a child knows how much a mother could love.

“Only YOU will know the strength of my LOVE for you.
After all, you’re the only now who knows how my HEART sounds like from the inside.”
