Sunday, May 10th is a BIG holiday for everyone! We will be honoring all the MOTHERS around the world for all the greatness they exemplify, while we have the ONE day we celebrate MOTHERS, I believe this should be done EVERY DAY. As a child growing up and through my teens, I used to cringe at the word “mom” or “mother” because I never had a like figure in my life. I always thought that a “mom” was just that, a “mom.” Well I was wrong. When I entered the foster care system, I began searching for someone, anyone to be my like figure. They say that a mother is someone who leads by example, nurtures you, and will always be there to guide you. Well I was on the hunt, looking for my “example.” As I was bouncing around from home to home, school to school, group home to group home, I wasn’t finding it, seeing it or feeling it in anyone that I had come in contact with. What was wrong with me? It wasn’t until I turned 18, aged out and was on my own, that I realized the word. I didn’t just find one “example” I had found multiple. For me, I don’t call them “mom” or “mother”, I refer to them as my GUARDIAN ANGELS! I witness my sister becoming a new “mom” a couple of weeks ago and it wasn’t until then that I truly discovered the true meaning of a MOTHER. Watching her with my BEAUTIFUL new niece is the sweetest thing EVER!
Why is this important?
You see, there are different forms of a MOTHER. So this post is in appreciation for ALL you new MOTHERS, foster MOTHERS, biological MOTHERS, adoptive MOTHERS, single MOTHERS, grandMOTHERS, great grandMOTHERS, & GodMOTHERS.
