With Mother's Day I have been reflecting what kind of mother I am, with that I have been thinking a lot about all the mom's in my life that I have met in the past or know currently that make me want to be a great mom just like them!
Mom 1 - This woman has been a single mom for a long time. She works hard and adores her only daughter. She has provided a stable and loving home for her, and encourages her to excel in everything that she does. She has taught me the stability of motherhood.
Mom 2- This woman raised several children, and although she wasn't a perfect mom, she continued to search for a better way of life for herself and them. She has taught me the hope of motherhood.
Mom 3 - A single mom who has a teenage son and they have an open and honest relationship. This woman has been through so much, mentally and physically yet still has the ability to believe in a higher power and has taught her son what that is worth. She has taught me the faith of motherhood.
Mom 4 - A married mother of three who had many unexpected turns in life. She has raised them to be polite, loving people who are a joy to be around. She stands her ground when necessary and holds true to her word. She has taught me the strength of motherhood.
Mom 5 - A married mother of two, who is teaching her children the importance of protecting our earth and ourselves. She goes against modern life and chooses to be engaged with her children by home schooling, and providing them with a natural home. She has taught me the ingenuity of motherhood.
Mom 6 - A single mom of two. She is the most natural parent I have ever met. Her children enjoy the freedom of being who they want to me at every moment of every day without the restrictions of societies expectations. She has taught me the playfulness of motherhood.
Mom 7 - A married mother of four, she is the energizer bunny! She home schools, volunteers and works outside the home. She is even opening her home up to others in order to proved them with the security and comfort her family has. She has taught me the generosity of motherhood.
Mom 8 - A married mother of four, who juggled motherhood, a career and a marriage, long before it was cool. She raised four daughters to believe in themselves, and always take on the next challenge of life. She has taught me the courage of motherhood.
Mom 9 - A married mother of two, once of which has special needs. She is informed and educated about her child's needs. She is outspoken for both of her children. She has taught the advocacy of motherhood.
To all mothers that I meet, whether its in the grocery store, on the ball field or in the office, I am your student.
Happy Mother's Day!
