Quotography - Motherly Love


I am a mother,
whose children are becoming young adults.
I have held their hands, wiped their tears
experienced joy, worry, and fears.
As babies I watched them take their first steps
which were only the beginning of firsts in their lifetime.
It has taught me patience, and compromise
and about saying sorry, because
I have and will continue to make mistakes.
And no one said it would be easy,
it is by far the hardest job on earth.
I have learned through fresh eyes
things about myself and of life,
and that love does not divide, but instead multiplies.
Through it I've discovered that I am strong
and they have shown me what it means to be courageous.
I love them unconditionally,
and will forever wear my heart on my sleeve.
I am a mother.




The truth is,
none of us are going to do it right, none of us will do it perfectly.
But we will do the best we can and when we know better hopefully we will do better,
and support each other in the process.

Love, Kim
XO

So well said!!! It's so hard to see them growing up & needing us less- but more at the same time.

Karen said...

Hold on while I wipe the tears away.....you have put into words what has been overflowing from my heart. Every accomplishment they achieve seems to take them one step further from their Mom. Motherhood is both the hardest, and most rewarding job ever. Beautiful photo to go with your beautiful words.

Tracy said...

there is so much truth in those words...no, we don't come with a guide on the 'how to's' of mothering so we all just do the best we can and hopefully our children will forgive us our mistakes or errors in judgement.

What a beautiful post...your words resonated! As a mother, I nodded my head at every word. Thank you for sharing your very wise thoughts (and beautiful photo!). It's so bittersweet to let them go as they leave the nest; it's a feeling of pride, love, and sadness all at the same time.

Nancy said...
