Inspirations by Frances Durisseau
With Mother’s Day approaching this weekend, I would like to talk just a little about being a mom. It is the best job and calling in the world but can seem like the worst at times. It is the most difficult and most rewarding thing you will ever do. It is full of soft, fuzzy, warm and beautiful moments and it can also be full of worries, struggles, lack of energy and sleep, along with endless wondering whether maybe you are doing it all wrong.
A mother I know once posted something on her Facebook page about what being a mom meant to her page followers, as she was having a difficult time adjusting to some things pertaining to motherhood.
Here is my response: “Being a mom means losing your patience, losing your mind sometimes and losing your heart for ever, for generations to come. Being a mom means gaining it all in the midst of what briefly feels like loss. From a mom and grandma.”
Motherhood has many faces but the best one of all is the face of our babies, when they are good, bad and even indifferent, at any and all ages from the moment of their first breath until we, their mothers, take our last.
