First Mother's Day!

Tomorrow's Mother's Day, and boy do I feel excited! Though there are no Mother's Day plans for me/us, I'm still pretty excited to be having my first Mother's Day! Sure, Kaitlin can't say "Happy Mother's Day", neither will she know what day it is, but it just feels kinda nice inside. 

Earlier on, before I put Kaitlin to bed, I hugged her and told her it's Mother's Day tomorrow, and that mommy held her in my womb for 9 months..and if she remembers. Of course, she was up to her usual climbing and stuff, but it just felt so good hugging her..and that led to me, typing this post and looking through the photos of her when I just gave birth to her..

I still remember so clearly, how I held that tiny little body of hers in my arms. It was a feeling that can't really be described in words. I was happy, and yet emotional at the same time. When I first held her, for a split second, I was afraid. Afraid if I was up to it. Up to this new role I had. Being a mother.  When I held her, it dawned onto me, that this is real. It dawned onto me that I brought a new life into this world. I realised this child's life is now in my hands, and now I have a greater responsibility. It was a different feeling of love. At that moment, I just felt like I would be able to do anything and everything for her. I guess, that's what they call "a mother's love". It really is a love like no other. 

To be frank, I don't think I have done much for Kaitlin in the past 7 months since she was born, or even during the 9 months she was in my womb, but I'm sure many mothers out there, have done much much more and I really take my hats off to them. Many other mothers out there have sacrificed so much for their children, and showered their kids with all the love they've got, to the point of neglecting their own self. 

To all the mothers out there, you deserve a pat on the shoulder, you deserve a hug from your family, and you deserve a big fat "Thank You!" I think for all that a mother has done, a cake meal, or even a present really can't amount to the amount of time, love, effort, care, concern, sleep, blood, sweat and tears they've put in for their children, and their family. Yet, these small little gestures, can make their day and make them feel appreciated. Even without all this, I'm pretty sure, every mother out there really doesn't expect much in return because that's just how big a mother's love is. 

To all the mothers out there, you deserve this day! In actual fact, you deserved to be appreciated every other day! Happy Mother's Day and I hope all the mothers out there have a great Sunday with their families tomorrow :)
