To the strongest women, I dedicate this post to you.
You are all inspirational. The sacrifices you make, the hardships you encounter and how you continue to love endlessly and unconditionally through it all, I am yet to understand.
From the moment you decide to have a child, you give yourself up as a person and you become two people, a difficult but empowering transition that many women of this world choose to make.
Sometimes, I think of my own mother, all the times she has had to remain strong for her children, the emotional strength she must have to continually love and smile to prove to her children that everything is alright.
I do not disregard the role of fathers, who make an equal contribution to their children, to those fathers who fill the gap of absent mothers. To those mothers, who are not mothers by blood but through love and compassion. To those sisters and brothers who are more like mothers to siblings when parents are missing. To anyone who has had to love, care and support a child, you are champions.
Happy Mother’s Day! Without you, we would not be!
5 things I am grateful for:
- My mother
- Homemade coffee – was good if not better than cafe coffee.
- Old family photos
- Sisters – during difficult times, who else would I turn to.
- Boyfriend – for always being supportive and kind.
