“If I were asked to define motherhood, I would have to define it as love in its purest form, unconditional love”. -Unknown

When I read that quote I couldn’t agree more. I thought that I knew what love was, but after my sweet Bella girl was born I realized that my heart was capable of loving so much deeper than I realized. In the first few days and weeks after we brought her home, I would watch her sleep and my heart would swell, as my eyes would water with happy tears. I couldn’t believe that she was here, and that she was all mine. My dream girl. Now, as a silly and (very) active 8 month old, I watch as she sucks on her toes, babbles endlessly, rips off her diaper, and tries to crawl, and everyday my love for her continues to grow.

In 2020 I would sit and ask myself what my purpose was in life, and sometimes I didn’t know what the answer was. Sure, I blame it on quarantine and having entirely too much time for self-reflection, but now my purpose is so clear. I’m supposed to be a mother, to teach my girl and to love her every single day.

Happy early Mother’s Day to all the moms (and stepmoms!) out there.
