To say my life changed when I became a mother for the first time 6 1/2 years ago would be an understatement. However, I don’t think there is any easy way to fully explain the transformation of my life in just one word, sentence, paragraph or post. I could try by saying my life finally felt meaningful but I think before children I thought my life felt meaningful but in a way more egocentric way. There was that moment, the one where I first saw the tiny, little baby of mine for the first time. It felt so surreal, that this baby was mine. I knew right then why I existed. I knew then that my life on earth had a purpose and that was to be this baby’s mother. In one moment I felt so alive, so scared, nervous, anxious, excited, elated, exhausted and loved. It was the absolute best day of my entire life when I was blessed to become someone’s mother and then 4 years ago I was blessed to do it again.
Motherhood brings with it many challenges. There are days I am not sure what I am doing, I worry I might be doing it all wrong. There are nights I stay up late staring at my kids dreaming, hoping and praying for a safe, healthy and happy long life for both of my children. My hugs linger until they pull away and my kisses never stop planting themselves on their sweet little heads. Motherhood is gift I cherish above all else in life.
This morning I had the chance to list to the new single “Mom” by Garth Brooks. The first time I listened to it my eyes filled up but the second time I listened I cried like a baby. A song filled with lyrics of God telling an unborn baby how much his mother will love him. I am not a religious person, at all, but this song isn’t about religion. It’s about a baby being assured of the depths of a mother’s love and the safety and security that can be found in a mother.
“You’ll never have a better friend or a warmer touch to tuck you in”
“Anytime you hurt, her hearts going to break”
“There’s someone down there waiting, whose only goal in life is to make sure you’re always gonna be alright”
The whole song spoke to me as a mother and as a daughter. The true rawness and realness of a mother’s heart and her love for her baby ring through in this song. Garth Brooks beautifully delivers what is sure to be a song that millions of sons will dance with to with their mothers on their wedding day. It’s a song that daughters will hear and will cry knowing their Moms love and support is real and true. It’s a song that mothers will listen to, and just like I did, they will cry.
