Motherhood is a delicate balancing act between:
Nurturing and smothering
Caring and hovering
Instinct and insecurity
Giving and giving in
Being in control and giving up control
Reprimanding and understanding
Holding on and letting go
Sometimes it feels unsteady, unsure. Then again, it can feel like precise perfection, like just exactly where you’re meant to be.
Motherhood is a complex combination of joy, exhilaration, fear, frustration, beauty, doubt, wonder and worry all in one beautiful bond.
Motherhood stands above anything else in my life as the job, the duty, the blessing that I treasure beyond anything else.
It has made me appreciate my own mother even more than I did in my youth and it makes me appreciate every day in ways I never knew possible.
Motherhood is love that knows no bounds.
