'tis true... once you become a mother, the light is lit and, suddenly, you realize the depth and breadth of your mama's love.... and as your babies get older, and more obnoxious, the appreciation and love just grows. it's truly amazing, that love.

I just had a moment like that this weekend. I was so upset at my children for not doing their chores, for being insensitive to each other, for the lack of respect they have been showing. Then it hit me, my mom felt like that about me. However, she never showed it. She just continued being a mom and being strong and diligently working on turning my brothers and I into the people (i like to think good people) we are today! For every day I feel like the worst mom in the world I am so thankful for the wonderful mom I had. It makes me love her even more and also gives me hope to carry on as a mom and never ever give up trying and loving.
