Motherhood is by far the most difficult, but also the most meaningful thing I’ve ever done. I have found in my kids the two people who know and love me most, and have a much higher opinion of me than I could ever deserve. They understand that I will always do my absolute best for them, but now that they are older (11 and 16), they also understand that I’m just a human and I struggle too. They believe in my strength, but also allow me to be vulnerable. They’re my best friends. I’m so grateful for this journey of being their mom.
