“Mommy.” She said it and I knew. She was mine. I was captivated. Because Mommy is forever.
It’s such a powerful name. Mommy means “I trust you.” Mommy means “You will protect me.” Mommy is for shouting when you need someone dependable and for laughing with when you are excited; Mommy is for crying on and cuddling with when you are sad or giggling and hiding behind when you are embarrassed. Mommy is the fixer of boo-boos and the mender of broken hearts. Mommy is a comfort place, a safe place. Mommy means you are mine and I am yours and we are family.”
So thankful today for my crew that made me a Mommy and that we are all back under one roof after T and N1 spent a week serving on a mission trip in Guatemala. (Yes, Guatemala!)
Happy Mother’s Day.
