Mothers Wisdom - Liz Nelsen

My absolute favorite thing in the world is seeing their faces first thing in the morning. No matter how tired I am and unmotivated to crawl out of bed to tend to their every little need even before my own, I am completely in awe when I see those little eyes beaming up at me as they seek my refuge and unconditional love. It doesn't matter if yesterday was a complete fail or if I'm feeling like anything but supermom it gets me every single time making my heart swell literally skipping a beat and creating tiny little flutters in my tummy. They are such little miracles blowing my mind on the daily that they are a creation of our love and ours to keep. Holding them first thing in the morning while showering their tiny little bodies with kisses, caressing their perfect baby soft skin and combing my fingers through their hair as I tell them good morning and how much my heart loves them is the greatest thing in the world. Not until I became a mom did I understand what it was to love someone more than yourself - to love unselfishly and to completely lose yourself in someone else. The whole watching your heart live outside your body is so true! Motherhood has changed me in a way that is so raw and pure and has taught me more about myself than I could have ever imagined. You know how people say your life forever changes the day your child is born? Well it's true, it's undeniably the truth and I am so blessed to have had the privilege not once but twice. It's such an honor to experience a love that gives you the greatest purpose in life - to be their mother is the toughest job I've ever had but it is also the greatest joy.
