There are days when being a mom feels like a cape wearing adventure. Wanting it all, every single day, for each one of my children. Trying to keep in balance all of their needs and schedules and not to mention the special cuddles in between. Every once in a while you meet a mom that inspires you. Completely and totally inspires you to the point that when you walk away you realize you can do it. You can do it all. I will share with you just how this Mom taught me that.
You see, sweet little K was ready to come into this world much before the world was ready for him. But he was determined and day by day he showed the world what strength is. But not alone. He had an amazing Mom with him every step of the way. I was lucky enough to know her. Through each up and down she would have this amazing sense of peace and intuition. One day, in the middle of it all, she said something that has stuck with me. ” I just smile at him and show him happy every chance I get. I feel that if he looks up and sees me smiling he will know it is all okay”. Hearing that put it all in perspective for me. Show them happy. If they learn happy then they learn survival, strength, and how to overcome anything.
There is not a day that goes by that I dont think of those words. And when my cape is feeling worn and tattered I just show them happy.
Speaking of happy.
Don’t you see it just oozing out of these two? She is a SUPER Mom.
