Reflections of Motherhood

Mother's Day 2009

Before I became a mommy, I had always heard that it was the hardest job in the world. Now motherhood is my reality and the truth of the matter is that it's very hard indeed. As a matter of fact, being a stay-at-home mom IS the hardest thing I have ever had to endure. I'm constantly battling with my emotions and his too. Yes it is very rewarding and there's nothing like the love I feel for my little guy; but, at times, the hardship of motherhood settles in. It's my duty to mold him into a respectable human being and steer him down the right path. God appointed me as his mother to mentor and teach him right from wrong, to boost him up so he'll always know that there's nothing beyond his reach. I want him to always remember me as an affectionate, fun-spirited mom who would do anything for him. My first and final thoughts of all of my days will always be of him. No matter the years that pass us by, my concern for him will never expire.
I love you sweetie,
Today, Tomorrow, and for all Eternity!

Most moms have an obsession of photographing their families that they rarely are ever seen coming out from behind the camera. That's why Carin @ Forever in Blue Jeans created a new challenge for all blogging mamas. It's called 52 Weeks. Every week moms will be stepping away from their cameras and sharing the spotlights with their loved ones. Looking through my photos, I discovered that it's so true. I'm missing in action in most of the shots. And really it doesn't bother me one bit. Well......maybe just a little. I would have to say that when I look at pictures of me growing up, my favorites aren't the ones of me alone. They're the ones that capture me with my family, especially my parents. So, I'm excepting the challenge.

I loved your honesty in your blog. I totally and completely understand exactly where you come from. Being a stay at home was not my career path... until I held my baby and realized that no one could raise my son better then I could myself. I think you are an incredible mom and you have a beautiful family!

That is so true! The dads dont get that being a stay at home mommy is all consuming. Its also the most precious gift ever and your right -we are never in the pictures!

This is a beautiful picture! I agree that motherhood is the most difficult, the most heart-wrenching, the most exhausting, most rewarding, most fun job there is! (if it can be called a job....it's an adventure!)
