A few thoughts..

Friday, May 9, 2014

We made it through another week and we're onto the weekend - a very special one, of course. I'm counting down the office hours until I'm home and enjoying some quality time with my little family.

Mother's Day is this weekend.
Ever since becoming a mom, this time of year has been very emotional for me (ok, so this is only my second Mother's Day, but still..). Be it the inexpressible gratitude I have for my mom, the overwhelming honor I feel for being given my own little guy, the reflection on what it means to me to be a mom, the forthcoming attention, I'm not sure...but it gets me. I can't read lovey-dovey books to Tyson without almost crying, trying to write a card to my Mom (or other moms) turns into a blurry-eyed, tearful event that I put off because I can't quite come up with the right words.. Obviously, becoming a mother has turned me into one big emotional mess.

I'm really good at NOT being able to come up with the right words - not just on Mother's Day but everyday. That's why I turn to pictures a lot on here - I just don't know what to say. I mean I do, I feel it so deep in my soul and in my heart, my mind races with the perfect words that I can't even think it without feeling the emotions goose bump it's way out of my skin. When I hear or read it, I know that's how I feel, that's what I want to say..!! But then come time for me to type, write or say it... Nada.
So to my mom, mother-in-law, grandmas, mom-friends:
Thank you.
And good job.
Know there is so much more behind those few words than I can ever express.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
