From the moment I found out I was pregnant, my baby gave me the gift of motherhood. The living and breathing each moment for someone else; motivation to be more, to be better, to inspire, to let go, to grow. Becoming a mother stretches you physically, mentally and emotionally; it changes you for always. It is the gift of falling in love a little more every day for the rest of your life.
Another gift she gave me is the deepest respect, admiration and love for my own mother; the Rose in Charlotte Rose. Not only because I understand the overwhelming love, dedication, guilt, fear, pride and every other emotion that overwhelms you when you become a mother; but because my mom is here with my 4 days a week helping me raise my baby girl as well. I am beyond blessed.
Becoming a mother has also brought me into a community of motherhood from all over the world. A community that I am honored to be a part of, alongside all of you.
I know I was aiming to release my first interview today; but I felt like this was more suited to the occasion and Shanéy’s story deserves a day of its own. So the week ahead is going to be a good one! Interview, giveaway winners announcement and coverage of the amazing #CTMeetup I attended this weekend.
A very happy Mother’s Day to you all. Hope you got all the spoils!
