Mothers Day

Tomorrow is Mothers Day.  Mothers Day is something different for me then it is for any of my friends or family.  Something that a lot of people don’t understand.  

I have celebrated Mothers Day my whole life.  First as a child with my mother and my grandmothers.  Then in 2006 when I fell in love I celebrated with my mom and my boyfriends mother.  To me she was just as important, because she had mothered the man that I had fallen in love with.  Then in 2007, I celebrated as an expectant Mom.  By 2008, I had my own baby in my arms when I was celebrated for the Mother that I now was.  In 2009, my second child was now with me for the celebration and I also had a god daughter celebrating me as a Mother.

In 2011, I was a Mother who was childless half the time.  You see, I had got a divorce.  My ex and I had split custody and for 2 or 3 days every week I was alone.  Not many Mothers, if any have children planning on being away from them a couple of days out of every week.  I was celebrating Mothers Day much differently that year.  It was hard to wrap my head around this new found role for myself.  How to be the best Mom that I could be while they were with me and learning how to live without them in my house.  During those days, I was still a Mom just without any children.  I never stopped thinking about them, loving them or making decisions that I believed they could be proud of.

By 2012 I was remarried, had gained 3 amazing step children and was pregnant with my 3rd biological child.  Man how things had changed over the last year and a half.  I now was being celebrated as a Mother in so many ways.  The Mother who gave birth to children, a step mother who loved and cared for 3 step children as her own and a mother who was pregnant with the baby boy who was going to tie us all together for a lifetime.

This year in 2015 I have six children that I am mother to.  They are all at my home as I write this.   I do laundry for all of them, cook for all of them and tuck them all into bed with a hug, kiss and an I love you.  They are all my children.  Each of them loves me and relies on me to be Mom.  Different days, different times, different ways.  We got here through a different path…but I wouldn’t change it.  My 2 year old understands and can explain it to you if you need help….he says “Isaiah has 2 Moms”.  Yes, yes he does and what is wrong with that?

Happy Mothers Day
