And this came up on another post! I asked what your favorite thing about being a mom (Or  about your mom) and here are the answers! So many good ones!

  • what I love most about my mom….is realizing she is more than just a mom…she’s a person. I grew up thinking that my mom…was just a mom. 24/7. but now that I am a momther (new word..just made it up) I realize that she is a person too. she has likes and dislikes…she probably needed to “rest her eyes” (mom code for taking a nap) but I thought her job was to wait on me hand and foot and so she couldn’t possibly need a nap.
  • I remember growing up thinking that my mom’s favorite color was orange….when I was little, after all the kids had picked the colors we wanted…there was an orange and brown cup left and I asked my mom what her favorite color was…she said orange. and since then have always harvested this thought that her favorite color was orange. lol. know i find myself doing the same thing..taking the burnedtoast….choosing whatever is left after everyone picked. my mom was so generous and such a great mother….and she had 2 more kids than me…so I if she could do it with 5 (and I was one of those horrible kids..)…i can too…(that thought keeps me going when i have locked myself in the bathroom)

onto your awesome comments:

  • *My favorite thing about being a mom is being let in on that secret mama love. Before I had a child my mom told me that I could never understand the love without being a mom. I thought she was wrong. My mom raised us as a single parent for a long time after leaving our abusive father (whom I’ve made amends with and have a great relationship with now-PRAISE GOD!) so my mom was all I had. I loved her more deeply than most love their moms. I thought the love I have for her was as deep as the love she had/has for me….but once my daughter was born…I instantly knew the mama love secret. There is no greater love this side of heaven than the love I feel for my daughter. The awe and the warmth and how it encompasses everything…being a mama changes everything. I am blessed more than I deserve and am more in love with life than ever. God’s gift of motherhood to me and the secret knowledge of mama love is the greatest thing about being a mama. <3 Happy Mother’s Day to all!!! Shhhh…..don’t tell our secret…no one will believe you anyway…until they KNOW! ; )
