It's carrying and caring for a life completely dependant on you for survival. It's giving air to the lungs that grew within you, and sight to the eyes that will never see you as anything but mommy.
It's sleepless nights, its nursing scratches and scrapes, it's being stern and protective. It's teaching them to talk, to walk and to eventually run.
It's learning to hand your child to a stranger to let them teach what you cannot at times. It's bracing them for a fall, and dusting them off after they do.
It's seeing them cry and not knowing how to fix it, so you sit on the floor and hold them and cry right along beside them.
It's teaching them that they are smart, capable, funny and giving them the security to do great things.
It's building their self-esteem, supporting their dreams and loving them unconditionally.
It's letting them go, letting them fail and teaching them how to get back up. It's going without so that they don't have to, and being OK with it.
Being a mother is a gift that is unimaginable to any woman who does not have a child in their life.
It's a connection that is unmatched in any form or other relationship. It's a love that grows continually, a love that always wants more and better.
Mama Papa loves you Arabella Medina.
Be a good & solehah girl. May Allah protect you always.
