Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and it is a really big holiday at our house. My boys always worry about what they are going to get me!
Now that I am “older” and have been doing adoptions for over 10 years I find that saying “you can’t buy the most important things,” to be so true.
I cannot buy those ridiculously funny things they say, or the feeling I get when they hug me, or the smell (if they’ve taken a shower) they have. I can buy those family nights or the talks around the table when we are eating. I cannot buy the indescribable love and compassion I feel for them. I guess it is just what happens when you become a mother.
Here is to ALL MOTHERS; whether we are moms by birth or adoption! A very Happy Mother’s Day!
