Five Minute Friday : Joy of Motherhood

Five Minute Friday

The joy of motherhood, no matter how my family tried to explain it was totally lost on me.  Not until I had a baby of my own.

It was then I discovered the happiness one feel in holding this little bundle of joy.  This little kid who, just by being who she is, makes my heart swell so much with love.

A smile given freely, a hug out of the blue. These are things that makes motherhood or parenthood well worth the pain.  This is a person who loves you no matter what.  Someone who accept you and your little quirks without explanation.  Someone who cares for you just because.

It's an unconditional love.  One that does not wait for anything in return.
