Our little mama finch has been hard at work filling her nest in our front door wreath. I thought it fitting on this Mother’s day to show off what this little mama is working so hard to do.
10 years ago today I became a mother. My little tiny Brenna came into this world and completely changed mine. In so many ways I feel like I was born when she was– I found my strength and power and purpose. And I finally began to understand my own Mom, to love and appreciate what I just didn’t have the capacity to love and appreciate before.
So, thanks mom for being my mom. I love and admire you so much. I think of all the little things– ordering me cool magazines so I could draw pictures of tigers all day long, not nagging me to practice the piano, but paying for lessons anyway, tolerating my messy room, but making me do my own laundry, lining up Action Packers along the kitchen wall to pack for week long camping trips and making it look so easy and fun. In so many ways I am trying to be just like you, and it’s funny how in so many ways I am.
Thanks to all of you mothers who come here and read my blog. Thanks for your comments and friendship and all the good you do in your own little sphere. There is nothing more important in this world than being a mother. I really believe that.
