“Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood - finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.” - Jodi Picoult

Motherhood is an entire gamut of every emotion under the sun wrapped up in an imperfectly messy, yet utterly brilliant, bow.

As mother's we all know that time is far too fleeting & precious -- our children are daily reminders of this. But what I am understanding better as time goes on, is that I was placed to not only be their Mama, but to also learn, heal, grow, love, release, laugh, cry, trust, live, dance... WITH them.

Whether you are a mother, want to be a mother, miss your mother, long for a mother -- the truth is, we are all essentially mother's at heart. Each of us are beautifully woven with extra care, compassion, empathy & love inside of us. We've been doing this naturally since the beginning of time, and learning from others along the way -- be it from our maternal mothers and our chosen ones.

The beauty in motherhood is that we all get the choice of what we want to create it to be, as well as what we allow ourselves to learn from it. This journey continues to shape me & remind me that there is no other title I feel more honored to hold. I am so thankful today & everyday (even on the 'I want to scream at the top of my lungs ones).

Happy Mama day, Mama's! And most especially to my own mother, Nela, and my mother-in-love, Kitty -- two of the VERY BEST. May you feel all the love & appreciation today, & every day.
