When your feeling under-appreciated it’s pretty easy to forget how much love there is for you in the world.
It’s easy to imagine needing to get away and leave them to their own devices for them to realise exactly how much you do for them.
As Mums, especially so of little kids, we are their whole world.
They can’t get through a day without holding our hand; snuggling tight; wanting comfort; needing food and letting us know their thoughts, wants and needs.
Some days it helps to remember that this was a choice. We chose this life because of it’s beckoning rewards.
For the moment when you meet your baby for the first time;
Seeing their smile;
Hearing them say Mama;
Feeling their tiny hand in yours;
Watching them concentrate so hard to get things right;
Touching the curve of their chubby cheeks;
Kissing away their tears;
The rewards are truly endless but some days it’s hard to see through the fog and you think no one is watching.
No one is seeing how hard you work.
No one is thanking you.
But they do.
They return all that blood, sweat and tears the only way they know how….
With endless love.
