Motherhood is nothing like I imagined; it’s better.
Motherhood messy, ugly, smelly, and hilarious. Motherhood is raw, real, and unapologetic.
Motherhood doesn’t care how educated we are, how much time we’ve devoted to parenting books, or the depth of our good intentions. Motherhood transforms our rigid thinking, forces our creative genius, and leaves us believing in more.
There’s a lot to be said for the unexpected joy and chaotic beauty of motherhood. I love my life and the scattered remains of Goldfish crackers under my couch cushions. I love the tiny hand-prints all over my walls. I love the laughter when it’s loud and deep. I even love the tears when I can take the pain away.
Boys, thank you for allowing me to be your mother. Because of you I’m more, better, and forever humbled. I will work every day of my life to be worthy of the glory you’ve somehow found in me.
I don’t know what I ever did to get so lucky.
