Being a mom has given me stretch marks,
I've cried countless tears,
lost more hours of sleep than I could ever count
and worried more than I thought was ever imaginable.
being a mom has also given me more joy & happiness than anything in this world could give me
It's given me more laughs
and smiles than I thought was even possible
Even in the depths of my darkest hours
a simple giggle or grin from my LiviGirl
or even just the sound of her voice can reach through to my soul
and change my mood completely
She is everything I ever wanted,
but didn't know to wish for.
She's my sunshine,
and my purpose in this life
I'm forever thankful that I get to be her "mom" in this life.
I love you, LiviGirl.
A few of my favorite "mom" quotes:
"What I wanted most for my daughter was that she be able to soar confidently in her own sky, whatever that may be." ~ Helen Claes
"Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else's happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you're not sure what the right thing is...and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.” ~ Donna Ball
"Once you become the mommy or daddy in your child's world, it is the only world in which you exist, no matter how much you fancy there is a separate world of your own." ~ Robert Brault
"The trouble that finds me and not my child has taken the decoy." ~ Robert Brault
