On November 21st 2015 at 9:19am I became a mother for the first time. Words can not describe the overwhelming joy that I felt that day. I swear that I was in shock. Even though I had been pregnant for 9months I just could not believe that I had created this person.
Now as I watch her grow my heart is filled with joy causing me to develop a lump in my throat. Deep. Raw emotion. So much so it can bring tears to my eyes. I have never felt a love like this. People said that to me but I did not understand… it until now.
As I celebrate my first Mothers day as a mother I can really understand the meaning of unconditional love.
This year I am fortunate to have my maternal mother and my mother in law here in Canberra to help us celebrate my first mothers day. They both have been exceptional mothers to my husband and I giving us the foundations to be the parents that we are today.
Their arms were always open when we needed a hug.
Their hearts understood when we needed a friend.
Their gentle eyes were stern when we needed a lesson.
Their strength and love have guided us and gave us wings to fly.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mother’s around the world, now that I have walked the walk – I too salute you.
