From the moment you hold your first child in your arms, you know you will never be the same.
You may long for the person you were before. Worries get bigger, nights get longer, days become more full. But LOVE GROWS STRONG.
Don't forget, there is a last time for everything. There will come a time when you will feed your baby for the very last time. They will fall asleep on you after a long day and it will be the last time you hold your sleeping child. These moments are fleeting.
So often us moms spend our time nurturing our families and are busy taking photos of our kids' big moments. How will we have have the opportunity to capture our place within these beautiful fleeting moments?
Too much of a Mother's life goes undocumented. We don't get to see the way their smile turns in such a way, as pride for her children glows. They don't know how she spends time searching for just the perfect treat in the grocery aisles to thrill her children, or the way she arranges her day to be there for those special moments.
I know its tough to step outside of our comfort zone and step in front of the camera. Too often we won't because we only see our imperfections. However, I know when I see photos of my mother during the time I was growing up... the last thing I see is imperfections. What I do see is... the way I remember her hands. I feel the way she would squeeze me for a good hug, or kiss my temple and call me Care-Bear.
So let your children see the way you looked at them. Let them see how much you loved them. Because nothing will ever compare to the value of the memories you create. Nobody is perfect. But your are perfectly their Mother. So please... don't be afraid of that.
