When I first became a mother I was very excited! I viewed motherhood as one of the most important roles a woman could fulfill. This position allows you to love, nurture, cultivate, teach, provide and protect your little ones.
One of the most exciting events is watching your child grow. It is an amazing experience to encounter, this little human being growing inside of you and then make their grand entrance into this world. So awesome!
Once that little bundle of joy arrives getting everything prepared for their stay can be quite interesting. While preparing, all kinds of thoughts races through your mind. What kind of mother are you going to be? Will you become just like your mother? Will you be viewed as a good mother? Will you have everything you need? All these questions and more will cross your mind.
The role of the mother is a little more challenging because you are the nurturer and care-giver. While providing love and understanding this role may also require at times some reprove and correction. Some mothers can sometimes be over-protective and over-bearing in an attempt to keep the wolves from devouring her little lambs. She can be vicious if she feels an attack approaching her little ones, but, she feels that it’s her responsibility to make sure they are not harmed and rightfully so. She tries to heal all their little boo-boos and sometimes pretends they can do no wrong. She uses her instinct as her guide to accomplishing the task with the utmost caution and concern. She wants what is best for her children, while not always aware of how to provide it; she gives motherhood everything she has to offer. She may not have everything she needs at her disposal, but, she always finds the resources to get what she needs. She instills a sense of pride and self-worth into the hearts and minds of her little companions.
When I became a mother I quickly realized that one day soon, my children would develop into mature adults who would replicate a family brand name with my signature. With this in mind, I gave motherhood everything I had to offer. The time, energy, concern, love and support because I knew this would be one of the most important roles. I personally made sure there needs and concerns were met by participating in their little world. Whether we were reading books at the library, taking bubble baths or outside playing, everything was a learning experience. The creative ways that can be developed to accomplish this role call motherhood can be different for every woman. Enjoy the journey!!!
