THE SHINING LIGHT IN OUR LIVES

Swarovski Mother's Day

This coming Mother’s Day, I’ve teamed up with Swarovski to honor the shining light in our lives – Moms.

Swarovski-Mother's-Day-04

I’m first to admit that I never fully understood a mother’s love and strength until I became one.

Being a mom is the most difficult and most rewarding role us women have to undertake. The fact that we are able to give life to another human is a miracle and true testament to just what our bodies are made to do. When I became a mom, my past life became irrelevant and suddenly, the world made sense, and I knew why I was put here on earth.

I also learned what unconditional love felt like.

A mother’s love is the purest and truest form of love. It is selfless and does not ask anything other than the happiness of our children. She radiates with love and lights up the house with her smile. She makes everything better with her gentle touch and embrace.

There’s nothing I love more now than looking at other moms with their children when I’m out and about. With no one else looking, you can see the pure love radiating through their eyes as if they are in this bubble of love. It’s little moments like this that makes motherhood so fulfilling. To me, they are the most beautiful, inspiring women I know and they all deserve a little brilliance in their lives.

Swarovski-Mother's-Day-02

And for this, I’ve teamed up with Swarovski to showcase their special Mother’s Day collection that pays homage to celebrating the brilliant style and spirit of moms. From their special Sparkling Dance collection to their classic watches, there’s something special to celebrate your mom’s style.

    Nice 👍..
    Being a mother is learning about strengths

    • Learning about strength, especially how long you can stand without sleep right? haha.

  • krizia

    As a mother to be.. Extending all the love I have to this tiny human growing inside me. Nothing else matters.

    • Hi Krizia, I didnt know you’re expecting. Congratulations, you must be excited. Your baby feels so loved already. Keep radiating that love and welcome to the best club in the world.

  • Susan G

    Being a mother is a tough job. You are on call 24 hours but the joy and love that radiates from your baby’s eyes is worth it.

    • 24/7 but the best job in the world though. Happy Mother’s Day Susan

  • I guess the greatest thing about being a mother is this eternal love and almost limitless patience you didn’t know you have. Being a mom forces these characteristics out of you. You’ll realize that its no longer just about you. You’ll be selfish, you’ll be contented about the little things such as a 30 minute nap or to be able to shower daily. I wasn’t able to buy new underwear but I couldn’t care less as long as my son gets to have the toy he really likes. Being a mom changes you to become a better person. Sacrifices aren’t sacrifices anymore but a natural instinct that will just come out of you naturally.

    • ahhh. 30 minute nap is a gift! your message is very touching Alysa. Happy Mother’s Day.

  • Najmunnisa

    My kid is the reason I wake up each morning , the reason I breathe and why my hair is falling out ,my house is a mess & I am crazy 😜

    • haha. Love this. Everything is true. Motherhood is the perfect juxtaposition in life.

  • Tala

    My 6 year old daughter pointed this out to me and I thought it was brilliant (in her words):”being a grown can be boring so we need to have children because playing with them is much more fun than doing grown up work.” It’s true, what I love most about veing a mom is playing with my daughters. I’m often surprised by how much they know and how creative they can be!

    • Your daughter finds you perfect and the most fun mom ever. They reveal things that you don’t necessary notice about yourself.

  • Nihan

    Being a mom teaches you things you thought you already knew about yourself (read: being selfless) and brings you upfront with your strengths that you never knew existed in you (read: staying awake almost always)
    It is the most demanding job in the world whether you stay home or work outside of home. I have two beautiful children, boy (4 years old) and girl (7 months – whose dressing btw is inspired by your baby’s outfits :)). These two drive me crazy, push me to edge, keep me on my toes, have me made sleepless and paranoid – but call it crazy, i won’t have it any other way.
    My children are the main reason that strive me to the best version of myself so I can raise a wonderful, caring, respectful yet brave/strong boy and a confident, fierce yet a kind/loving girl.
    They are the reason, I strive to do the best for myself – be it looking after my health, losing weight or dressing well. If I am healthy, I am able to take better care of them and be more involved in their lives. If I have a good, balanced/disciplined routine, they will seek after it too. After all, they will compare their health/life goals based on what I do/did and of course, what their father does/will do.
    Being a mom is definitely the hardest thing but also the most rewarding and all I can say that I cannot be thankful enough for this blessing in my life.

    • Hi Nihan, I love your message because it’s so real and something I can relate to the most, including staying awake and getting 4 hours of sleep!. When my baby was born, i had the same motivation of being a better person because they just inspire you to do that. Happy Mother’s Day mama.

  • Rabeea Mohammad

    Such a sweet giveaway. What do I love most about being a mom? The first and most simple thing that pops into my mind is the cuddles! Right from when they were itty bitty at the hospital to being hyper tweens. I’ve got three girls (7, 4 and a 5 month old) and all sorts of horrible moods (mine, not theirs) have been fixed with a cuddle. Even with the older ones now in school, I try to get to them 10 minutes before wake-up time and spend 5 minutes with each one just holding them, taking in the smell of their hair and reminiscing about how little they once were. Sometimes, all of a sudden I’ll have this realization that this kid who is up to my elbow, or my navel or now spilling out of my lap used to be so tiny and it fills my heart with joy and fear at the same time. Joy at the beautiful people they’re becoming and fear at the not so beautiful world they will one day face without us. And to deal with both that joy and fear, I hug them just a little tighter and hold them a little longer trying to make each moment last.

    • Cuddles are the best! it is the cure to everything. Your 3 beautiful girls are precious and I’m sure they will thrive into the world, thanks to the support and unconditional love from their mom. I feel you though about feeling both joy and fear, it’s a strange feeling.

  • DAMLA

    Being a mother feels like you multiply yourself,first another body lives in you then you breathe in another body
    It feels like you somehow upgraded your level in this life,jumped to another level of evolution..more emotional, more stressful but stronger,faster,more awake and much more busier of course.I used to get really sick and be down twice a year but now I don’t have time for this:)
    Good luck to all mamas..

    • I love this Damla because I couldn’t agree more especially on not having the time to get sick. Happy Mother’s Day.

  • Zain Khalili

    That is a great question, because throughout the day we complain about being tired and in need of more sleep but if we can answer this question every morning oh how diffrrent our days will be. There are so many great things about being a mother. The first and my favorite is the kisses and cuddles! My son just turned one and he just started to give my kisses and hugs and i go crazy in love every time. Just this morning, he woke up before me and decided to wake me up with kisses(Co-sleeping). That was the best way to wake up. I didn’t care that he woke up so early and that he woke up multiple times at night because he’s teething, those morning kisses made me forget about all that. The second greatest thing about being a mother is seeing things through their eyes. Smiling and laughing at the silliest things make me look The beautiful world we live in but have forgotten to truly see it’s beauty. Knowing that I’m the reason my son my smiling or giggling makes me the happiest person. And lastly, one of the greatest things about being a mother is breastfeeding! The connection and the closeness of mother and baby during breastfeeding is truly a mircle. Even after a year, I still get a rush of love when my baby sleeps on my breast. Knowing that we have a special bond that no other person can have with my son is so worth the struggles and something the pain of breastfeeding. When my son is not feeling well or got hurt while playing, i know that holding him soon and breastfeeding him will make him feel better. That is such a wonderful feeling and I am so so thankful that I have been given the opportunity to become a mother and to be able to breastfeed my son.

    • Hi Zain, your message is so inspiring for all of us moms to stop and appreciate the moment we have with out LO. First of all, Happy Birthday to him and secondly,kisses! Lucky mommy. It’s wonderful feeling isn’t when you take the time to see the world through their eyes that you become more appreciative of the little things in life. It’s a wonderful world we live in especially with our children around.

  • Sajna Fathima

    When I became a mom,I got a rebirth.The best part of it is that, I started loving my mother more.Now I am more grateful to my mother than before and is more appreciative of everything she has done for me.My attitude,perspectives and outlook towards life took a new turn.I became more selfless,more patient and more innovative in everthing I do.My life got a new meaning and better purpose after giving birth to my wonderfull daughter.I am learning new things from her everyday.She taught me how to smile from the heart,how to be happy about the simplest of things,the beauty of innocence and a lot more.Being a mom makes me “more proud” about my mom….that’s the best part….Besides the fact that along with my daughter was born,a “better me”.

    • Hi Sajna, your message made me weep. That’s how I feel about my daughter too. She’s teaching me more things everyday and it’s as if we are in this journey of discovery together. Your daughter is so lucky to have you as her mom. Happy Mother’s Day.

  • As a mom of three I love that these precious little darlings look up to me and want my attention and love and care. I love the smiles, the cuddles, the messes they make and the stretch marks they gave me. My house maybe a chaotic mess but my heart finds peace in their presence. Most importantly what I love about motherhood is that it taught my how much love my heart can hold ❤️ I never thought it was possible…

    • This is very inspiring Ayesha. What a lovely message. I agree with you. Time stops when you’re with them. Happy Mother’s Day. Your children are so loved, I can tell.

  • The best part I love about being a mom is all the new experiences I have which I would not have had, had I not been a mom. I would not have learnt/read about breastfeeding, baby wearing, baby-led weaning, cloth diapering, gentle weaning, gentle parenting, konmaring, OPOS and the other innumerable aspects of parenting. Frankly, I wouldn’t even have tried cooking new recipes (cos I am lazy when it comes to cooking :D) if I didnt have to feed my little one healthy delicious meals. Being a mom makes me want to be the best and improved version of myself.

    • Hi Shahira, what is OPOS? I’m the same. I think my bookshelf is filled with baby and parenting books. What’s your favorite meal to make your LO? Its true that being a mom inspires you to be better but I’m sure you are already pretty perfect in the eyes of your LO. Happy Mother’s Day.

  • Hannah Z

    Being a mother is the greatest gift God has given me.Just waking up every morning and looking into my childrens eyes is enough for my heart to over flow with love.I am lucky that I have been blessed with 5 beautiful children and can’t imagine my life without them. Being a mother has also taught me to appreciate all that my mother has done for us. She is a strong,loving woman who gave up a lot of things to insure that we were always happy,all while living in a foriegn country far away from family and friends. I love my mum very much and wish her a happy mothers day because she deserves to be celebrated.

    • Hi Hannah, wow. 5 children! you are so blessed. You have a very strong role model to look up too and I bet you are as amazing as your mom. I can tell that you love her so much. Happy mother’s day to you both.

  • JoAnne Gabral

    Almost six years now when I got pregnant, that was not easy for me, and for my husband, aside from we didnt planned it,I was 18 years old at that time,Even in my dreams,i didnt imagine at my young age I can be a parent, as the days and weeks passes by, until she started kicking inside my tummy, we felt so great and excited.What is the feeling of the first lift of a mother to her new born baby? Actually, No words can describe how happy i was, I felt relieved. What I love most being a mom, is the fact that no matter how tired we are from the whole day work, once they smiled at you , all your worries and tiredness will easily turned away. And they will call you Mommy!! I can provide them what they need, and they want. I give them my unconditional love even the hardest way, and I must be willing to sacrifices at times, knowing that the outcome will be worth it.

    • Hi Joanne, them calling you Mommy is the best feeling ever. Thank you for sharing your motherhood journey and I’m so proud of how far you’ve come and your strength. Happy Mother’s Day.

  • Tatsky

    Being a mother for an unexpected time gives you a thousand reason to survive and to succeed, and in return you feel the most priceless happiness and enjoyment, the moment that you will see your baby 😂😂😂. Having a baby gives you more strenght inorder not to give up and keep on fighting.

    • I couldn’t agree more. They are our strength and our reason to move forward.

  • Being a mother is a realization of everything my own mother used to tell me.. She used to say that I will only understand everything about motherhood and unconditional love once I become one. True enough, when my first born came into this world, I have never felt so happy and nervous at the same time! I was so glad that finally, I could raise my own child, but with all the fears a first-time mom could ever have! I’ve had my fair share of crying and trying moments especially during the first few months, but whenever I look at my child, everything just become so right and perfect. As he grows older, and learn new things, I learned so many things, too! From changing the nappy, to having the patience to teach him his first ABCs, to encouring him how to walk and talk, and finally learning to have the courage to let him go to school without me! I am crying as I write this! Ha! I could go on and on and on! And now that we have another baby on the way, one thing I am sure of, it still feels like the first time once more! Haha! The only difference is that, I sure know now that I have so much love to give to another blessings given to us and that I can’t wait to meet our second child soon!!! Happy Mother’s Day to all! ❤

    • Hi Maricar, you also made me cry with your message. So touching. I’m a first-time mom too and I know exactly what you went through. You get to define what your motherhood journey look like for you and from what I can see, you are doing an amazing job. Your baby already feel so loved and congratulations to you both. Happy Mother’s Day and wishing you a safe delivery.

  • Shameela

    There are times when I look up at my daughter (4years) and wonder about this little life that I birthed and about the amazing mother-daughter relationship that we share. The greatest lesson that she has taught me is ‘forgiveness’. How easily do our children forgive our faults, our anger, our tantrums and mood offs? How can these little hearts love us unconditionally and think that their moms are always perfect and amazing? Infact, its my daughter who has taught me to be a little more humble, to be less judgemental, to forget and to forgive easily, to enjoy and cherish all those tiny moments of everyday that we otherwise brush off as mundane, and to be a better human being overall. My son is just 3 months old and every time he looks up to me and gives me that wide sweet smile as if the only thing that matters to him is to see me smile, honestly, I have no words to tell you what I feel then. This little bundle of joy is the one who reaffirmed my belief that my mind is very powerful and that I can do whatever I set my heart to do, with the peaceful way he came to this world. Ofcourse, there are moments every day that I feel overwhelmed and go crazy seeing our messy home, but I feel blessed, honoured and privileged to be their mother.

    • Hi Shameela, your message touched me and I love what you said about forgiveness. We are often so hard on ourselves and don’t love ourselves, but our kids will remind us how much we are loved and are perfect. And you are perfect in their eyes. I agree as well about suddenly having the courage and tenacity to go after whatever you want to do. Motherhood brings out the fearless spirit in you. Happy Mother’s Day.

  • Narmeen

    Being a mother changed me into a whole new person.The transition has made me realize my true
    Purpose of existence.The joy starts from putting
    Your kids first and getting up from the wrong side
    Of the bed and never wanting this to end ever.
    I love my boys to bits and although they make
    Me question my sanity at times but what life will be
    Without these munchkins never can I imagine and never will.

    • Hi Narmeen, this is beautiful. It’s the most joyful yet trying journey ever, but we wouldn’t change it one bit. Happy mother’s day to you.

  • Mercy

    Mercy
    Raising my daughter has been the most fulfiling thing i have ever done in my life.seeing her eat her brocholli and say thankyou for little deeds gives me so much joy for a job well done.

    • What a good girl she is eating her broccoli and saying thank you. Good job mama.

  • Bilkist

    Being a mother made realize about my super woman skills 😉 All the things I could do independently. It’s amazing how the unconditional love of a mother can make you do anything for your kids happiness. I wish we enjoy an everlasting motherhood filled with our kids love and concern.

  • Bilkist

    We have to admit, motherhood is accompanied with a toddler tantrums, messy house and lack of time for taking care of ourself. But it’s all worth it when you give more importance to an innocent angel instead of grooming yourself 😂😂

    • Haha. I love this, because it’s all true. There’s no turning back anymore once you become a mom. I sometimes long for those days where I can take a bubble bath and leaf through my Vogue magazine on a Friday morning.

  • chat sayson

    I may not yet to be a mother, but i would like to appreciate the love, care, concern of my mom who was be the foundation of my being. I remember when i was young, she stood by me, keep teaching me to do math, to pursue my college degree,shes been there whenever, wherever, whatever happens to me all the time, and how she contribute to my self being, as a daughter, for this small comments, i would like to give thank you much more to my mom!!. Happy mothers day and advance hapy birthday. I love you so much..

    • Moms are the best! And I’m sure you will be an amazing mom too because you have a wonderful role model to look up to. Happy Birthday to your mom

  • Jaime G

    Since loosing my own mum to a sudden death (only 51) when I was pregnant with my first child, I have had to dig very deep to try to find closure to an empty space I wasn’t sure I could ever fill again.
    I have a son 5 and a little girl 2, and to my amazement with time they have filled my empty space and got me through the worst pain iv ever felt. Without my children I could have gone down a very dark path.
    I owe my sanity, strength and determination to my children, because of them each day I try to be the best person and mother I can be. They saved Mummy 😊❤️

    • I’m so sorry to hear that Jaime and thank you for sharing your journey on here. It must have been a confusing time as you go through one of your hardest (death of your mom) and the happiest (birth of your child) at the same time. I applaud your courage to go through such a difficult journey and our children are really the strength we need to carry on. Happy Mother’s Day to you Jaime.

  • Nimida

    Being a mom is the bestest blessing for a woman ….Being a mom made me realise i hav sooooo much of patience and each time am doing it better …. Enjoy motherhood … cherish n make memories as this phase also ends in no time…

    • Being a mom reveals so much more of you isn’t it? You really do feel like a new person – better, stronger, patient and loving. Happy Mother’s Day Nimida.

  • Rachel

    All but one of my children were very sick when they were born. Its such an awful place to be in but when they fight and fight and come through with flying colours it makes you eternally grateful for their strength and will power. Even the days when you are a bit shouty and they tell you ‘You need to sit and think about what kind of parent you want to be’ are good days.

    • I’m so sorry to hear that and thank you for sharing your journey. I could imagine how difficult it must have been for you especially. Sometimes, we only concentrate on the children’s wellbeing but our own is often overlooked as we also carry the burden but have to be strong. You are a strong mom for going through this journey and your children will thrive because of your love. Much love to you and Happy Mother’s Day.

  • Jasmin A.

    • hahaha. I love this. Thanks for being real. and it’s all true. Being a mom is unglamorous at times but we don’t mind it one bit.

  • Meenakshi singh

    The best thing about being a mom Wow…there are so many…seeing the world thru my children’s eyes, laughing at everything or nothing at all, acting like a big kid, learning from my brilliant kid about things that I know nothing about, having my sweet baby girl smile at me that loving smile & give me a big hug just when I need it the most, reading with my daughter….I could go on & on…there is no job, privelege, title, honor more important and satisfying than being a mom!
    My Daughter is my reason for Breathing ,getting up & looking forward to the future.Every time she plays or does something else that her crazy, wonderful, brain seems to be endlessly talented at, and smiles at me with her gorgeous eyes, my heart just stops…..It happens every day. My two year old daughter is my heart walking around, outside of my body. she comes in every morning and says, “Good Merning Mama! What a beautiful day!

    • Hi Meenakshi, these are so wonderful and I couldn’t agree more. They really teach you how to celebrate life. She sounds so sweet, greeting you every morning. Happy Mother’s Day!

  • Meenu chauhan

    Being a mother you travel to n extremely new n wonderful era of motherhood.. you discover the purest n the selflessly dedicated YOU.. you find the artistic value lying within you after creating that purest soul.. I found the value of words which were really mere a group of letters before.. n you know what they mean now ??
    TOGETHERNESS : moments you enjoy wid ur little ones. ..cuddling, playing, rhyming, dancing, acting, motivating n al…
    LOVE: The most selfless n sacrificing one.. u don’t care for your health, beauty, sleeps, friends n other things… you can sacrifice everything for child… your baby becomes your priority… he/she is your present n your future too… your reality n your dream as well..
    Sharing : sharing all your time with your little one.. you even don’t care to share your very personal n private moments too… n so many…
    Being a mother I know myself better… I try to become a better human everyday… I feel blessed… I feel motivated…. I feel happy… I feel on top of the world..

    • Hi Menu, this is so sweet. I agree with all of these.

  • Josh

    When i was a little girl i always play pretend that Im a mom, its one of my childhood dreams, believe it or not, i want to have kids(fastforward…) When i got pregnant, im the happiest and i felt so blessed, im super excited, BUT im so scared and worried at the same time, i dont know anything about this new role, a new chapter of my life. Thankfully im always talking to my mom and she consoles me and she was my constant reminder ‘that everything will be fine, no need to worry, once you hold your baby all your worries will be gone and because of love for your child you will know what to do’ – iguess what she was trying to say is ‘motherly instinct’. (Ohhh, now i miss my mom)
    Now im a mother of 2 wonderful boys (7 y/o and 18 mos.) I love to be with them all the time, i want to see them and just be a family. A role of a mom is tough but all worth it especially if you see each milestones in their life.
    I gave up my work when i had my 2nd child, i used to fly. Its so hard for me leaving my eldest in the middle of the night to do a flight that sometimes im away for days. I missed a lot of impotant things about him and did not witnessed some of his “firts”. It broke my heart ,when my eldest was 4, i was abroad, he told me via skype that “please dont switch off the ipad, just pretend that we are sleeping together , just close your eyes and think that im holding your hands” that was his exact words, that time i know its my call to give up my work and coming from a 4 y/o, i cried. I know deep down in my heart i want to be with him all the time. Even if im jetlagged and exhausted from a flight, when my son sees me im like a super woman full of energy and just be a mom to him. And all my tiredness will be gone with just one kiss from him.
    Thats why for me what i love most is to see my kids everyday and be with them, i know the lists of reasons will go on and on and but for me – is to be with them, kiss them good night and woke up next to them.
    Its tough being a mom- coz to them we are not just a mom, we are their supermoms, and its a challenging role.
    ‘Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms out there’

    • Hi Josh, I know how you feel about your worries when you were pregnant as I was the same. Being a working mom is not easy and a very tough job leaving your kids behind. You’ve made a very bold decision to leave all that behind to spend time with what matters the most and I commend you for taking that leap. Happy Mother’s Day.

  • Rana Al Braich

    I am a first time mom & it is not easy. The smile on his face is worth it all : happy Mother’s Day to all

    • I feel you Rana, I’m a first time mom too and it hasn’t been easy but you will both learn how to tango and your love for each other is enough. Happy Mother’s Day.

  • Tahira

    Being a mom opens that door to childhood (read pantry stuffed with goodies)that was once Shut with the demands of the perfect figure teenage!
    You get to go back and figure it all again!!
    Ps. I love sharing my kid’s sugar!

  • Making the decision to have a child – it is to decide to let a piece of your heart go walking around outside your body!
    I understood this when I become a mother. And for me that is the MOST difficult thing to do as a mother – not the physical challenges but actually letting my little pieces of heart walk around this world. The protective instinct just kicks in when you become a mother, and it doesn’t change no matter how old your children are. Becoming a mother has also taught me what “unconditional” love actually means…
    Though motherhood comes with its own set of challenges, I would not trade it for the world! Nothing beats the cuddles, hugs and kisses I get from my 3 kids, who by the way are monkeys by the day but turn into angels when they are sleeping 🙂
    Happy Mother’s Day!

    • Hi Shehar, I love this and I share the same feeling of me being protective and want to keep them from harm. Your kids are so lucky to have you as their mom.

  • Neha Mistry

    Being a mother is about multi-tasking, being selfless, taking quick decisions, having extra energy which we get from seeing our super cute babies. The best part is the amazing amount of stamina we have all of a sudden to do everything to keep our child happy, healthy and smart.

    • And also add how we function with so little sleep.

  • Nisma Kamran

    Being a mom truly is a blessing which is filled with cleaning lots of dirty diapers and don’t get me throught the training part. You can’t live without your kids and when they are around you find places to hide. You love your kids so much that you avoid giving them junk food and to do that you end up eating it yourself. That Pure Love. You conversations aren’t complete untill and unless you talk about your kids. You say you want Me time or a break from kids and end up talking about them. That’s Love. You get to know about your patience when you are in public and you try to control your anger and negotiate with little minions. When you teach your kids ti behave and they end up talking something embarrassing about you in public and you try to avoid that conversation is a real talent. … Being a mom means putting your kids first and that’s something that comes out naturally.Love yourself and kids. Because as no one can place of kids in your heart, no one can take place of their mom in their hearts and life. And while being a mom do remember your mom and appreciate her efforts and Thank her this Mothers day to teach your kids the importance of thanks and motherhood.

    • Hi Nisma, Ahhh this is beautiful, it made me tear up. i completely agree with everything you said 100percent.

  • The best thing about being a mom is you can enjoy with your kids just the way you want which is not same with a friends baby or a realtives or a neighbor’s kid where you have to return them back by the end of the day or even within hours:)..you have them with you your cuddle pillows:) they are the part of your blood and skin they are the blossoms of you and your partner which you can nourish forever with all your love and compassion forever..when you are tired, in grief in anger or anything negative that is surrounding you that little smile and the cosy hug just eases away all the pain…i am in such a lovely phase of my life now being a mother to my 2 cute little daughters…wow!!! i just love mothers day i can just pour my heart out with soo much ease…just loving it!!!

    • Hi Manzie, this is simply beautiful. They do they all our pain and negativity away with their cute smiles. Your daughters must feel so loved by you.
      Happy Mother’s Day

  • Hello dear karen lovely post I am an old, new follower of your page perhaps,I am a grandmother of 2 lovely grandchildren. Being a mother is indeed the best stage of a women’s life and i have thoroughly enjoyed my daughters growing up as lovely ladies now. one is pursuing medicine and 1st one has given me gifts for life with 2 beautiful grand daughters.i am reliving motherhood with them and enjoying this new phase its so lovely to watch my little lady grown up to this beautiful mom now,the tiny tots are just like her they just remind me of her childhood days.I can see so much of patience in her now the way she is handling the kids which is incredible! because i remember her as a very irreprisible & compulsive child always on her toes for something. Motherhood definitely changes a women within brings transition from a carefree person to such a responsible soul.Being a mother is the best stage of life but being a grandmother is the greatest phase of life i feel, because you get to live your childhood days twice.I am fortunate enough and thank god for this beautiful life from a daughter to a wife to a mother and now to a grandmother my journey has been exuberant.I wish every mother here the best of everything in their lives hope to see you all enjoy this beautiful journey with all your heart, love,care & compassion.Take up this challenging yet beautiful stage of life like a bubble of joy. Be strong all this will be worthwhile trust me. God bless you all!

    From the diary of mommy of 5 ❤ For me experience of motherhood is divided into 2 phase. I became mother when I myself was in my teens ( 17 ) and then with in a span of 3 years I became mother of 3 beautiful gems ( 2 girls and 1 boy).it’s like I grew up with them .it was a roller coaster ride during those years of life and I have experienced varied emotion while raising them up .Sometimes i felt so insufficient and over the edge but their hugs and cuddles washed away all my worries and self doubts and every new day was like new beginning.it teaches me the immense strength our gender possess being a Mother.Later on I was blessed with 2 boys and I felt like a pro thanks to my earlier experience offcourse taking a nap was still luxury this time too plus paying attention to your baby while solving your teeangers son and daughter issues are like pole apart But that’s why nature made mothers as creative genius.I wish and pray that when my children look back into their life they find happy and loving memories of their Mom.
