Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms who celebrate today. Truth is that being from Panama, I mainly celebrate this especial day on December 8th. But because I have been living here over 10 years, I have also embraced celebrating in May. I suppose I am lucky to be able to celebrate twice a year. 🙂
This is my 9th Mother’s Day and it’s just as special as the first. Every year on this date, I feel blessed to have been able to embark on the great adventure that motherhood has been for me. I feel so honored to be able to raise my two girls. While, it’s not always easy, it’s my favorite thing to do. I’m not the best mom in the world but to them I am and it fills my heart with joy.
Motherhood has been a learning curve! And to my surprise, I’ve learned the most from my little ones. They have taught me to pause and enjoy the little things. I’ve learned that patience is a must. And that it’s ok to break the rules sometimes. Most importantly they have taught me what unconditional love is. These little one love so hard and I look up to them for that.
In honor of Mother’s Day, I teamed up with fellow blogger and mama, Ada over at Elegance and Mommyhood for a special link up.
Words from Ada; “I became a mom in my early thirties – a dream I had had since at least a decade prior to that. But I think like most things in life, it happened at the right time. To say my life has changed since my sweet princess Vivian has reigned my heart and my life, would be a huge understatement. She is the reason I live, smile, laugh and breathe. Even more so since I have been raising her on my own the last couple of years. Through thick and thin, my little girl and I have proven to be an unbeatable team. I hope our super close mother and daughter bond grows as each year goes by. I will work hard to make sure she has the best life possible because she is my entire universe! Thank you for being my daughter, sweet Viv! Today I celebrate Mother’s Day because of you, my beautiful, loving, smart and amazing daughter!”
Make sure that you hop over to her blog to meet her and her mini me. Thanks so much for stopping by and if you’re a mom, stepmom, mom-to-be, I hope you had a fabulous Mother’s Day!
