Who we are as people and as mothers helps to form the foundation that our children build upon. Every decision we make from the moment our feet hit the floor to the time we lay our heads to sleep, sets a standard for our children. They see what we want them to and the things we try to hide. Children notice what is done and also what is not, the present and the non-present, the apparent and the transparent. These little pebbles are the materials used to build the road to their future and glimmers our legacy for generations to come.
Happy Mother's Day to all women who are braving the journey that is motherhood with perfect imperfection and hopes that we are setting an example that will hold tried and true generation after generation. What will your legacy be and what will it leave?
