A Mother's Day Post

I used to always be around children. I loved to teach them when I worked at two different private schools. One was Ivy Crest Montessori when I was 19 and the other was a Korean school located at their church. My brother had got me that job. I basically tutored them and taught them the alphabet or how to read. It was fun to play with them on their recesses and the best part was the bonds we formed by being together so much! It's sad that I probably spent more time with these children during than their own parents.

While I was dating Michael I quit the job to go back to school but I have gone back to visit them since then.

Then, after I married Michael, I became an aunt to my first neice, Aubrey. I love this little girl!

The day after we got home from our honeymoon.

Touching "Uncle Mikey's fuzzy head".

And then Mikayla came along as neice number two! I don't get to hold her as much though. She cries if she isn't in her mommy's arms! Or sometimes her dad or sister's arms.

Jarom, Tiffany, and Mikayla.

Aubrey and us at the wedding.

I love these two precious girls! But loving other people's children is definitely not enough to keep me content! Sometimes...I just can't wait to have my own.

Mother's Day is simply a reminder to me of something I don't have yet. Of course I believe it's a wonderful time to celebrate everything our mothers and grandmothers have done for us and what they stand for. I love to take a special day out of the year just for them.
But every year I think, "I'm not a mother. I thought I might be by now but I'm not. Maybe next year."

So...to you lucky mommies to be or already-mommies (or both!)...enjoy this special day on Sunday. Happy Mother's Day!

Thank you so much for the comment!

I know exactly how you feel. I adore my baby niece, Zaylee, well she's 16 months old now. I love being her Aunt and sometimes I feel a yearning to be a Mother and have a sweet baby just like her. It'll happen someday, Lord Willing, for both of us.
