First I'd like to wish all of you moms a very happy Mother's Day!
It is not an easy job to be a mother but it truly is the best and most rewarding job I've ever had. Watching my children grow and helping them on their journeys has been and continues to be an eye opening experience for me.
I have learned so much about myself and I have grown so much since I became a mother over 13 years ago. I was a very shy, meek person with about half confidence when I found out I was pregnant with my son. I quickly realized that even if I didn't stand up for myself, I had to stand up for him. I was responsible for him. I loved him. I needed to take care of him.
The moment he was born my life changed forever. I went from being Tiffany to being Mommy and to almost everyone else I was Justin's mom.
Since becoming Justin's mom, I've also become Jada's mom and Juliana's mom. I feel like I have changed with the birth of each child. I have grown. I have become more confident.
I'm looking forward to Mother's Day this year. Not because I am looking to be pampered or expecting to be showered with gifts and appreciation. I'm looking forward to Mother's Day because it is a day when I get to reflect on the mother I have become and the really the woman my children have made me.
I hope you all have a great wonderful super awesome Mother's Day!!!
