Because I’m The Mom

It’s not my job.

It’s my passion.

I will always try to make it better.

My methods may vary

But they will always have the same goal.

You.

  1. Something that our children finally understand when they become parents. Suddenly, mom was pretty awesome after all!

  2. That sums it up pretty well.

    This mom loves this.

    Oh, how wonderful, Colleen. Yes~ to passion and love! Not due to the required “role of Mother” but because you want to make things come out okay for your children and grandchild(ren), too. πŸ™‚
    I once said to my kids, “You are the center of my being.”

  5. Debra says:

    We often say that parenting is our job…but you’re so right to create the distinction, and establish that it’s your “passion.” I am confident that your children and grandchildren feel your passion for being their mom. Lucky them! πŸ™‚

  6. Ocean Bream says:

    You sound like an absolutely wonderful mum πŸ™‚

    • Awww, thank you! My kids don’t always agree. But that’s part of the passion too I think. πŸ™‚

      • Ocean Bream says:

        Oh deep down they know you are the best mother in the world to them and they wouldn’t want anybody else πŸ™‚ my mother said of her mother after she passed away: “mothers are the centre of your world, you don’t realise how much until you lose yours”

    I posted my Joined by Branches at 6:05 am where your post was my inspiration. β˜†β˜†Thank you, Colleen!β˜†β˜†
    Take care! I leave for Mom’s when we finish work. Unfortunately, we may do 9 to 10 hours so will be a madhouse on 71N to Cleveland. Happy Thanksgiving, Colleen and family. β™‘

  8. Aww, feeling the love. You’d be a good mum too ❀️🌹

    It never ends. πŸ™‚

    Lovely post Colleen! πŸ™‚

    This reminds me of my mother, in a good way. πŸ™‚

  12. I wish more parents had your self-discipline. It’s difficult being a parent in the time we live in. Your child/children have much to be thankful for. Nothing takes the place of a parent that genuinely loves you and cares.

    • Thank you Sheri. I was blessed with kids who may have tested me, but within the limits of things I could handle. They have thanked me, and that has been my gratitude. Knowing they know it.

  13. We don’t need to be best friends with our kids, but to love and guide them to be able to live in our world. You wrote it so good Colleen.

    I think that poem could do as well if it began with ‘because I’m the grandmom (mum)’ What do you think, Chatter Master?
