I can’t always say that being a mother is always easy. I can’t say that I’ve always been the best mother on every single day. That I’ve read a bedtime story every night, or always kept my cool. I can say that I enjoy being with my child (most of the time) and that’s because we spend a lot of time together as a family. I do a lot of mothering, kissing of knees, reading of books. Even on Mother’s Day I did my mothering. It’s the little things really that my children will remember the most, the time we spend together.
On Mother’s Day I celebrated my children and spent the day loving them. I gave respect to the wonderful women who are a part of my life. On Mother’s Day I celebrated all the love and joy they bring to me, even if it is most of the time. Motherhood is not easy, its selfless love. I’ve learned over the years its harder to be selfless than it is to mother but being a good mother is being selfless. Giving them more of myself than I do myself.
We then went to the Portland Japanese Gardens and enjoyed walking through and exploring.
How did you spend your Mother’s Day?
