I see you mama, chasing your toddler through the park.
I see you mama, trying to get through your grocery list and managing the tantrum your child decided to have.
I see you mama, driving to and from school, practices and school events with grace.
I see you mama, reading to your kiddos.
I see you mama, doing laundry, getting lunches ready, making sure the house is clean for your family.
I see you mama, going to work, coming home and taking on your 2nd job.
I see you mama, healing that booboo with a kiss.
I see you mama, watching your kids at every performance, game and special event ready with your camera.
I see you mama, taking the world on your shoulders.
I see you mama. I admire you. I respect you. I support you. I am with you 100%.
To all the mamas in the world, you are MORE than anyone can understand. You are what makes this world run, you are what makes our hearts grow. I am thankful to my own mama for giving me the life that I have, for caring, nurturing and making me a better person. However you decide to celebrate this Sunday, whether you are celebrating as a mom, with your mom or just celebrating a special person in your life, take the time to cherish and embrace the amazingness these woman share.
Happy Mother's Day!
