This is the picture of a mother
She is capable of love in ways I can’t understand
I see it when she wakes up sick, yet duty-bound
I see it when she laughs without abandon at these funny little people
I see it when my instinct is to scold and hers is to hug
I see it when she sleeps so lightly, always on alarm
I see it when she sleeps so deeply, only to wake and do it again.
Being a mom—being a really good mom—is harder than anything I’ll ever do.
“Happy Mother’s Day” just doesn’t say it…but what else can I say?
So, Happy Mother’s Day…and now our fourth is on the way!
Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, everywhere. You are the reason for life.
