What does motherhood mean to you
"Motherhood is all about accepting your limitations of time and energy which stretch even though sometimes it feels they could consume you.
Search for and hold on to your own true self.
If you lose that, what kind of mother can you be?
Things are always changing no matter how much we might want things to stay the same.
You can take a picture of your kids every single day and every single day they'd just be getting older.
That's a fact.
A heartbreaking fact.
But still a fact.
So seize your days and dwell in them fully.
Look to your children because they know how to inhabit brief periods of time with extreme passion.
And for nothing more, really, tan the sake of those moments.
They can help you remember that, if you only slow down and let them.
Feel fortunate because chances are good you actually might be."
from the movie "Motherhood" starring Uma Thurman.
You need to know who you really are. We shouldn't confine ourselves with the chores that occupy our time. Find something that will make you feel you, the unique you. Let's enjoy each and every day God has given us.
Carpe diem - seize the day!
