For the past few days I have been reflecting on what being a mom really means. I have had my struggles with my own children and really had to sit down and think about it. Over the years, my relationship with my kids has blossomed. I have been a mom for 21 years and it has not always been easy. Now I truly understand what my mom meant when she said "just wait until you have your own kids". In celebration of Mother's Day, Kay Jewelers wants to know "what does mom mean to you?", and I took up the challenge to share what a mom means to me, and to share some of my Kay Jewelers picks that I think moms would appreciate, because I sure do!
No matter how bad things get between my kids and I, they will always be my kids and my love will remain constant, just like my own mom was with me. I remember growing up I was very much the rebel but my mom didn't give up on me. Even as I got older, her love remained the same. We would talk every single day right up until the day before she passed away.
You never know how strong a mom is until she's protecting you. Think of mama bears, we're that and so much more! My own mom was a stay at home mom and she took care of the household, fed and clothed us, while my dad worked. There is no one stronger than a mom.
How many moms do you know that go without so that their kids can have? That's what selflessness is all about. Moms would spend their last dollar to make sure that their kids have what they didn't have, and make sure that their families are happy.
I know that I would do anything for my kids, and my mom would have done the same for me. Our kids are our lives and I cannot see myself without my kids. My kids have changed my life and I would love to say that I have had an impact on theirs as well, and for the best.
I was blessed to have a mom who was my everything just as I was to her. Don't wait until Mother's Day to show your love, because as I like to tell everyone, tomorrow isn't promised and today is. Cherish your time together and honor the mom's in your life. To celebrate Kay Jewelers has an amazing selection of jewelry that you can share with your own mom, or a woman who means the world to you.
