You are deserving.

Happy Mama's Day to all of the beautiful mother's out there, whether it be by adoption, surrogacy, sperm donor, or the good ole fashion way. 

You are amazing in who you are and what you do.  

There is nothing and no one that can ever take the place of a mother. 

There are many times that E has come home and tried to provide relief but J will always want me, there are moments that he isn't feeling great, or when he knows I will protect him {which is always}.

While in that exact moment it can feel defeating especially after very long days, I am so happy to experience these times with J.  The good, the bad, and the ugly which are few and less frequent than I probably make it seem. 

I am grateful and thankful that God chose me to be J's mom and while it can be difficult to navigate at times and it has been harder than I thought. It is by far the greatest thing I have ever done with my life.

Becoming a mother has given me all I have ever needed and or wanted in life. 

I am so thankful to all of the moms in my life, who have groomed me and helped me become a great mother. Without all of the great examples, advice and help I am not sure where I would be.  

I am thankful to be a mother, to be able to hold my son daily, to be able to feel his heart beating, to steal his kisses and to be called Mama all day long. 

You won't ever be thanked enough, or appreciated enough at times but you are!
