What does the word Mom mean to you?

Written by

Mom is such a special title; it means so many different things to everybody. To me, it means that I was chosen by a higher power to take care of the gifts that God has given me, to protect them, nurture them, and help them grow to be responsible young adults. Now to be perfectly honest it is the hardest thing I have EVER done in my life. So much trust put into me for this task. Can I do it? Am I doing it right? Are they going to be ok? Am I going to screw this up? Are just some of the million or so questions run through my head on a daily basis; it can be so distracting. And the answer to all of them is YES!! You can do it, you are doing it, they are going to be ok and YES you are going to screw it up, it is a fact of life. Don’t let anyone tell you different. We are human, all of us, and if you want, to be honest with yourself, we have all made mistakes and will probably continue to make them. It is the nature of the beast. Now this is not to say that you are not a great Mother but to make you realize that it is ok to screw up as a MOM. Whatever you believe in, draw your strength from that.

Personally, I believe my strength and faith is centered on Jesus. He is my salvation and my guide. He is helping me to raise respectful, loving, talented children that he has blessed me with for their time on earth. Whispering to me that it will be ok, that he has faith in me but on those bad days, and yes we all have those, it is hard to hear that whisper. To remember his strength is all around me, to feel his hand on my shoulder reassuring me that it will be ok It means so many different things to everybody.
