Successful mothers are not the ones who have never struggled. They are the ones who never give up, despite the struggles.
My sons will tell you I was never one of those mothers who would win a “Mother Of The Year” award. Raising three boys as a single parent was far from idyllic and many days I wanted so badly to throw in the towel.
The massive responsibility of cultivating young minds was a task in which I never felt so inept. Looking at my adult sons today, any success at motherhood wasn’t because of anything I’ve done rather it came about as a result of the changes that took place in me because of my children.
Sacrifice is at the heart of motherhood. It begins the moment we accept our children and continues until our last breath.
For all you moms, and this includes those who serve in the role of motherhood, I wish you a Happy Mother’s Day from Bold Blind Beauty!
