What surprises you most about being a mom?
The funny things that my children come up with and do. Each day it surprises me how much my children learn me and what make me laugh. They do their best everyday to make sure they crack me up. One of the biggest laughs was one day when my children said “Mommie we going to be like you and help other people who need food.” Later that weekend, I realized they went in the neighborhood and had given out all my water and their snacks to the neighbor’s children (their friends). Instead of being upset, I smiled.
What continues to inspire you in your motherhood journey?
When I hear my children giving feedback about how they love me so much to other children or even when they share unhappy new with their friends but learned a lesson in it, it inspires me to keep growing and learning on this journey. Being a mother at times, I feel sometimes that I may not be enough but that inspires me that I am enough and more to them. This is a journey and not a race. Journey through with grace.
How has being a mom shaped your life?
Being a mom has taught me how to truly love without conditions and have patience. It has given me a great sense of self awareness. Being a mother birthed the resilience that is within me. A lot of people say the problems gave them resilience and I wont say that it isn’t true but being a mom you don’t have a choice to be resilient. You have lives connected to you that requires you to push, overcome, and recover all. Being a mom has put me in position of being a positive mirror to impact the younger generation.
