I have to say that motherhood is frustrating, scary, full of uncertainty, but most of all filled with love. This past year my kid I have been through what I’d call a storm. I should probably call it growing pains. We often pray for patience but don’t understand it when we are given situations that will require us to be patient. We want the situation solved. However that is not how life works.
I’ve seen myself grow so much as a mom this year. I have suppressed anger and judgement in order to be a better mom. At the end of it all the goal is not perfection but to learn from experiences. I would not trade this relationship with my son for anything in the world. In the end he makes me want to be a better person. I only hope that he sees in me what I see in him and that is a person willing to give their all for what they love.
